Careless Talk is thought provoking workshop which explores how a young person could be groomed to take part in extremist action.
The piece is set in the fictional town of Brodingham and tells the story of Scarlett, a young member of a minority community, The Circle, who are being persecuted by another group. The children are guided through a process where they find positive and peaceful solutions for the characters in this piece which promotes social responsibility, tolerance and respect.
Challenge extremist perspectives and consider alternatives to violence as a way of resolving problems.
Reflect on the role of the media, social media, gossip and rumour in contributing to perceptions and attitudes so that they understand that there are multiple points of view.
Discuss the impact and application of the 5 fundamental British Values.
“A superb piece of drama that told a poignant message relevant to today’s world. Fantastic, meaningful discussion on the five British values that we want our children to respect, for themselves and for society as a whole.”
