Film clips as starting points for discussions
This discussion tool is based on ten short film clips showing how fundamental rights may clash. At the end of every film clip, the students are asked a question they have to answer with either yes or no. They can vote using their smartphones or cards.
Afterwards, discuss the issues with your students. The discussion is not a debate to be won or lost. It is supposed to be an exchange of opinions and arguments.
- The students learn: to form an opinion based on different sources and discussions
- to really listen to others, respect the differences in opinion, and accept criticis
- to be able to list at least three fundamental rights that play a role in their own lives to understand that their freedoms (rights) are limited and to come up with an example from their own lives that illustrates how fundamental rights may clash
- to provide two arguments for the importance of fundamental rights to a democratic (free) society.
