The Power of Persuasion is a package of PHSE resources for secondary schools which uses the world and characters from Tamasha’s hit 2019 production Does My Bomb Look Big In This? by Nyla Levy to explore the subject of internet safety.
Four 90-minute workshops will guide students through a series of practical drama exercises, presented as audio files by actors in role. Each workshop focuses on a different type of grooming, and seeks to highlight the persuasive tactics being used, in order to help participants recognise and resist these, should they ever come across them in real life.
The workshops can be used as a Year 9 Scheme of Learning in Drama. Likewise, student writing and scenarios created could also provide a stimulus for assessed devised performance in GCSE or A-level Drama.
