Drinking Report

  1. 1. Year 9 PHSCME Balancing the arguments for alcohol Week 3
  2. 2. 2 Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps <ul><li>We have looked at some of the positive, negative, and neutral effects of alcohol. </li></ul><ul><li>The brilliant thing is you all have your own opinion! </li></ul><ul><li>Can you write down 5 positive, 5 negative, and 2 neutral effects of alcohol. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>HINT neutral will be can be bad, but have a good side, or can be good and have a bad side. </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. One Person's View <ul><li>Nicole Paterson, 12, from Glasgow reports on why she thinks the government should change alcohol laws. </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;In other countries they are allowed to drink at a much younger age than Britain. </li></ul><ul><li>We should learn to be sensible </li></ul><ul><li>I agree with this because I think that by introducing people to alcohol earlier we are showing children that drink is not necessarily bad - that it can be something to learn to socialise with and be sensible with. </li></ul>
  4. 4. One Person's View (Continued)‏ <ul><li>The government say there is too much underage drinking. I think kids do it because it's illegal and children find pleasure in breaking the law. </li></ul><ul><li>If drinking was not illegal then there would probably be fewer problems and children would not find it as big a deal as before because 'everyone' would be doing it! </li></ul><ul><li>I think its time for the government to think carefully about drinking laws - it would be for better not for worse!&quot; </li></ul>
  5. 5. What's Good? What's Bad? <ul><li>Look at the style guilines the BBC give to young reporters. </li></ul><ul><li>What has the writer done well? </li></ul><ul><li>What has the writer done badly? </li></ul>
  6. 6. Over to You! <ul><li>You need to form groups based on: </li></ul><ul><li>If you agree the drinking age should be lowered. </li></ul><ul><li>If you agree on an approach to drinking. </li></ul><ul><li>THIS IS NOT AS EASY AS IT SEEMS! </li></ul><ul><li>You may need to compromise! </li></ul>
  7. 7. 60 Seconds <ul><li>Ever seen 60 second news on BBC3? </li></ul><ul><li>You have 60 seconds to get your argument across. </li></ul><ul><li>Write a script for your SHARED argument. </li></ul><ul><li>Be ready to present to the group! </li></ul>
  8. 8. How am I marked? <ul><li>GOLD </li></ul><ul><ul><li>I keep to the 60 seconds, can tick off all the BBC guidelines, all members of the group took part. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>SILVER </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We are roughly 60 seconds, can tick off most of the BBC guidelines, and most of the group contributed to the argument. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>BRONZE </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Our report was really short or really long. We took little notice of the guidelines, only some people contributed. </li></ul></ul>
