    Who Killed Simone Valentine? introduction

    These sessions are designed to develop Key Skills through Citizenship themes. Theycan be delivered in weekly lessons, or as a blocked activity over 2 days, withsessions 1-4 being run on the first day and sessions 5 and 6 taking place on thesecond day. If you have limited time, you may wish to shorten some sessions by onlyrunning selected activities.

    The sessions have been accredited by the WJEC as part of their Firstskillsprogramme. Please send any films made during the course of running this project,and we will upload them onto our website, www.cewc-cymru.org.uk.

    This resource uses the film Who Killed Simone Valentine? as stimulus material.The film is based on a real-life story charting the progress of a 14-year-old girl wholeaves school because she is bullied, gets involved in drugs and crime, andeventually dies. It is a powerful stimulus to get young people discussing issues suchas childrens rights and negotiating solutions to problems.

    The sessions have been developed to include a citizenship element as shown below.

    Contracting In.

    If you are running these sessions with a group of people new to you or new to eachother, it is important to establish group rules and dynamics. The students need toknow:

    1) What they are doing2) Why they are doing it3) Whats expected of them while they are doing it4) What do they want to get from it?

    You may want to draw up a contract with them, based on the students own list ofguidelines and expectations. These can be referred to at the beginning of everysession. If the group isnt working to contract, work can be stopped and thestudents can work together to establish a solution to any problems. This furtheremphasises the communication and working together aspects of the Key Skillsprogramme.
