Guided Role Play

December 2015

The Guided Role Play involves a short issue/problem based scenario being role played by the teacher and students. The teacher develops the role play and plays the main character of the scenario and controls how the scenario unfolds, based upon student responses. The students engage in the role play to draw on their knowledge to manage and resolve the scenario issue. Those students not directly involved in the role play observe and analyse the role play and provide feedback.
