Lesmateriaal 350 Peer led drama workshop for older students (16 – 17 years) Source Childnet

This peer led drama workshop is designed for older students (16 – 17 years) to lead and facilitate with younger students (13 – 15 years). Young people will explore what online sexual harassment is, when, where and how it happens, and discuss key reporting strategies.

Peer to peer learning can have huge benefits, particularly when discussing sensitive subject matters as young people can often feel more comfortable talking about difficult issues, such as online sexual harassment, with people of a similar age. Discussing topics through the guise of drama and exploring situations through characterisation and role play can provide freedom to play out different consequences and discover potential solutions. 

Workshop outline

In this workshop, young people will explore what online sexual harassment is, when, where and how it happens, and discuss key reporting strategies. There is no pressure or expectation to call on personal experience, but the workshop will create a safe space to explore different ideas. Ground rules will be agreed to set expectations.

Peer facilitators are not expected to handle disclosures - the presence of an adult educator is still needed to moderate this risk.

Ideally the workshop should be run by an older student or group of students within the school or educational setting (i.e. a student mentoring scheme, buddy programme or school prefects) with an adult educator present to supervise. To optimise the full impact of the workshop, educators are advised to go through the session with peer facilitators beforehand. Alternatively, the session can still be effectively run by a teacher/ educator/youth leader.
