As we are all aware, celebrities greatly influence young people, but are they influencing young people to drink by glorifying it? Is society to blame for the increase in alcohol abuse?
A good idea of getting SENIOR RELIGION pupils thinking about these questions is by showing them a series of video clips and images that are being communicated to them by their celebrity idols. I used the clip and images below before and my pupils responded to them with great enthusiasm and interest. They sparked a lesson full of engaging and invigorating class discussion. I think it is ESSENTIAL that we communicate the content of our lessons through a lens that is in touch with the pupils’ culture.
