Use music or drama

Use music or drama

Music and drama are tried, tested and ageless methods used by children/young people to express their views and opinions. You don’t need to be an expert or have a degree in drama or music. All you need to do is to ask the right questions and then let the children/young people answer the questions creatively. Some children/ young people find this difficult and may need some direction whilst others can’t wait to be on a stage or perform.  As with using any form of creative media you need to stay focused on the task and questions rather than trying to create a number one hit or Oscar winning performance. Some may prefer to find a short written script or a well known song to adapt to incorporate their views and opinions, whilst others may be capable of doing something original. You could ask them what their view is of church and they could make a TV advert to express their views and opinions.
