Spot the winners

27th January 2006 at 00:00
Any teacher of teenagers knows that spots can be more of a preoccupation than Sats. Clear Confidence points towards a path through the embarrassment and anguish. It's a resource pack that starts with a 17-minute video-drama in the style of Hollyoaks, about squabbling siblings and existential anxiety. Then it provides seven lesson plans that look at topics such as self-esteem and puberty through PSHE and drama. Students are encouraged to work as scriptwriters and, by resolving a cliff-hanger finale, they can win prizes. Clear Confidence is free to all secondary schools.
