Conversation Cards are a great way to get students to speak comfortably about difficult issues. These cards should start meaningful discussions and spark healthy debate.
The teacher should print out copies the cards, cut them out and give them to students. Students then place these upside down and take it in turns to pick them up and read the statement on the card. The students then discuss the statement, saying how the different people mentioned would feel and why they acted in a certain way. The students should be encouraged to decide how they would resolve the problem too!
You can also do this as a whole class activity and it could be useful when working with small groups of students who have been bullied.
