Activity Guide: Student-led Assembly to Shatter Stereotypes
In this video, students created an assembly performance that included individual presentations, role-playing scenarios and musical performances. Any or all of these efforts represent exciting and creative ways for students to contribute their voice and perspectives to important social justice issues.
As this is a big undertaking, please review the following guidelines to assist in your planning and implementation.
- Role-play scenarios depicting experiences with prejudice, name-calling or bullying; highlighting positive interventions
- Student essays or poetry on these themes
- Musical performance (perhaps a strong finish for the assembly)
- Guest speaker from the community or school leadership
