  Let's Stop Bullying !!  
 

 

Discuss and assign roles for your group members

 

Discuss what roles are needed in this task and decide who should be responsible for which roles.  The following list is a suggestion for you to think about:

 

Script-writer

Director/Time Keeper/Play music during performance (not performing)

Actors 

Scheduler/Coordinator (to make sure there are enough rehearsals and everyone is doing his/her share.  Can be an actor)

Music (can be an actor)

Props/Costumes (can be an actor)

 

Each role has the final say on all decisions.  However, as this is a group task, please encourage each other to give opinion and work as a team.

Decide the setting (story, background & characters) of your drama 

 1. Do you know what bullying is?  Do you know what physical and non-physical bullying is?  To learn more about bullying, browse these websites:

http://www.kidshealth.org/parent/emotions/behavior/bullies.html

http://www.bullying.org

http://www.bullying.co.uk/pupils/index.aspx

http://www.surveyengine.ik.com/surveys/bullying/

2. Do you know what a positive or a negative ending is?  A positive ending means everyone in the story is happy about the outcome or the problem is solved.  A negative ending means someone in the story is unhappy about the outcome or the problem is unsolved.

Brainstorm a list of positive and negative endings and then find out if these endings are possible.  In addition to the above websites, browse the following to find out what can happen to a bully:

There are some Hong Kong laws about the wrong-doings of bullies:

CAP 212 Offences Against the Persons Ordinance

Art 17 Shooting or trying to shoot, or hurting or striking to do serious harm to the body (prison for life) 

Art 19 Hurting or causing serious harm to the body (3 years in prison)

Art 39 Attacking causing actual harm to the body (3 years in prison)

Art 40 Attacking without injury (1 year in prison)

CAP 210  Theft Ordinance

Art 9 Stealing (10 years in prison)

CAP 200 Crimes Ordinance

Art 60 Destroying or damaging things (10 years in prison)

Art 61 Saying you will destroy or damage things (10 years in prison)

Art 24 Some behaviours of scaring people are not allowed (5 years in prison)

Art 25 Attacking to make or stop other people doing something (5 years in prison)

Art 93 Helping or cheering on wrong behaviours (same prison years as the people doing it)

If you want to read these laws in detail, you can go to the website below and type in the CAP number:

3.  After knowing more about bullying, you should now decide on the time and place of your actions.  Breakdown your actions into "Scenes" - a scene shows what happens to the characters at a certain place and time.

4. You can now decide on the characters.  Their personality must be clear and different.  Each character should want something very strongly.  Think about what happens in each scene.

  • Ask:

Who is talking now?  Who is he/she talking to?

What is he/she talking about?  What is the relationship between these people?

When does this take place?

Where does this take place?

How is he/she saying what he/she thinks?  How is he/she feeling?

Why is this taking place?

  • Think:  How can you bring out the different personalities of the characters?

 


  

Writing your drama

You have to write down, in English, what the scenes are and what the following characters say and do in each scene :

(1) The bully
(2) The person, V, who is being bullied
(3) V's best friend
(4) V's teacher
(5) V's father or mother

You can write your scripts in two ways.  You can discuss and write before you act them out or you can act them out first and then copy them on paper.

No matter which way you choose, you must always remember your message, or what you want to say to people, in your drama.  Is what the characters say or do the same as your message?  Does your drama end in the way which is the same as your message? 

If you decide to write before you act, remember the following:

  • Ask:

Who is talking now?  Who is he/she talking to?

What is he/she talking about?  What is the relationship between these people?

When does this take place?

Where does this take place?

How is he/she saying what he/she thinks?  How is he/she feeling?

Why is this taking place?

  • Setting: the time & place of the actions
  • Scenes: how many scenes do you need and what happens in each scene? 
  • Characters: their personality must be clear and different.  Each character should want something very strongly.  How can you bring out the different personalities?
