The film “A Stone’s Throw” has been produced by Cinemagic in association with CCEA and deals with the risks and consequences of anti-social behaviour. In addition, a stage play version of the film has been devised by Maire Campbell. The film and script are available here for schools to use free of charge.
A Stone’s Throw
There are five accompanying lesson plans that deal with issues arising from the film such as conflict and peer pressure. The lessons use drama and active teaching and learning strategies to support and develop the teaching of Active Citizenship at Key Stage 3. Teachers do not have to be Drama teachers or have had any training in Drama to adopt and develop these lessons.
The following films and accompanying resources were created by Cinemagic Belfast to support the NI government's Fresh Start Plan (2015) and its aim to promote the rule of law and tackle paramilitary activity. Each lesson uses a film to explore issues such as justice, fairness, lawfulness and contributing positively to society.
