Drama - Taking care of the pennies

6th February 2009 at 00:00

Drama is used to convey the dangers of debt in a new resource which has already proved successful at a Glasgow school.

S3 pupils at Bannerman High have worked with Learning and Teaching Scotland and TAG - part of Glasgow's Citizens' Theatre - to produce Small Change.

They explored how financial issues could affect relationships, health and well-being. Dramatic scenes were filmed to represent typical experiences of Scottish families, leading to a DVD designed to stimulate classroom discussion. The project has been supported by Glasgow City Council's development and regeneration department and Clydesdale Bank.
