EXCLUSIVE - Short Film about Domestic Abuse and Unhealthy Relationships

EXCLUSIVE - Short Film about Domestic Abuse and Unhealthy Relationships

This short film exposes the initial stages, warning signs and red flags that are apparent in unhealthy relationships. It has received a lot of positive reviews from both students, external bodies and staff for representing a true reflection of relationships in modern day Britain. 'Infatuation' is described as an emotional, thought provoking and educational drama covering many cross curricular themes. Similar to: Murdered by my boyfriend This package also includes a worksheet with differentiated questions (can be adaptable to meet the needs of your students/class and/or subject). Since 'Infatuation' was written and directed by myself, I am more then happy to welcome any written work, feedback and/or inquiries regarding the film. The best piece will be documented on my website (www.infatuationfilm.co.uk) Please note, this film has mild swearing and is suitable for 15+

AQA 9-1 Sociology - Crime and Deviance; Biological and Psychological explanations

AQA 9-1 Sociology - Crime and Deviance; Biological and Psychological explanations

This lesson looks at the biological and psychological explanations of crime. I have used the sociological views of Lombroso and Bowlby and linked these to numerous case studies to get students engaged and thinking. All activities are colour coded to link to the objectives and to promote differentiation (choose your route for some; work your way through a traffic light for others). Video links are included in the PowerPoint.
