Do Celebrities Glorify Alcohol Abuse and Consumption? (Senior Religion)

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.
