Difficult Decisions

Overview

Over a series of short sessions, pupils will have the opportunity to consider simple social and moral dilemmas which may arise in day to day life. Pupils will be encouraged to make decisions by first considering their options before exploring the consequences of different actions through participating in group role plays.   Each ‘difficult decision’ is designed to be a stimulus for short discussion sessions with your class in which pupils can practise reasoning, listening and speaking skills.
