The questions and the story prompted some really good contributions from some of my Year 10 and 11 students, and I was pleased that they were keen to share their thoughts (and their own questions) without me having to prompt them. In fact, one of my students brought along a question from one of her friends, who I don't even teach!
The questions I used were:
- Do all criminals deserve a second chance?
- Does it matter if they haven’t apologised for their crime?
- Should criminals be allowed to work in jobs where they could earn £1000s every week?
- What is a "role model", and why do we expect sports starts to act as role models?
If you want to use the questions in your own classroom, you can download the poster here.
