Session five: protest Final Piece

Play, pause, talk BNC session video!

Join Tom and Olivia for this week's session. In this video, we'll walk you through each activity, give examples and hints, and then ask you to pause and complete the activities in your own time. Check it out!

Scroll down for all of the activities from this session.


STEP 1

Have you heard anything about this Issue since last week? This could be things you have seen in the news, conversations you have had on the Hub or something else that's related to protest. Has your opinion changed on anything since last week?


STEP 2

Have a look at these keywords from the Issue.

keywords.JPG

Now look at the questions below and read them aloud. They probably don't make much sense!

  1. What is the difference between shh and shh?
  2. What is similar about shh and shh?
  3. How does shh show shh?
  4. How do we know if shh has/have worked?
  5. Who might think differently about shh?

Your challenge is to replace each of the SHHs in the question with keywords from the picture. For example: what is the different between protest and standing up for others?

Warning! Not all of the keywords work for every question! Once you have questions that make sense, see if you can answer them yourself to recap your learning on this Issue.

CHALLENGE: try to come up with your own SHH questions for the rest of the club and write them in the comments below.


STEP 3

It's podcast time! A podcast is like a radio show and we want you to have a go at making your own. As many of you won't be at school, working in a group might be quite difficult. Fear not! Here are some top tips.

  1. It's fine to work on your own and type up your podcast, then upload it as a Final Piece post.
  2. If you'd like to record your podcast, perhaps two people in your household would like to join in? Everyone is welcome! Alternatively, you can act as three characters... that's fine!
  3. You could work with two friends from your school via Zoom or on the phone. We'll leave the technology up to you!
  4. If you are able to record your podcast - that's great! You can find instructions on how to upload it here.

If you have any problems or questions, please write them in the comments section and we'll try to help out!

Download the planning sheet you help you prepare. You have until the end of half term to upload your Final Pieces (Sunday 14th February).

      well modest river,
      the difference between standing up for others and protest is that standing up for others is sort of like being on their side and protest is when a small-large group of people show people their opinion on something.

    Hi Burnet news club I was wondering since we are making a Podcasts do we have to use the search questions within our podcast and will you be writing a news report like what we did last time or will we be interviewing people but in a podcast?

      Hi decisive_redcurrant, thanks for the questions. This is a really flexible Final Piece and asks you to present two different opinions on whether protest works. You can do this by recording/writing an interview, or a news report, or a mix of both. I'd recommend following the Final Piece planning sheet above, and then ask us if you have any specific questions! You do not need to use the Shh questions in your Final Piece - this was more of a warm-up activity for this session.

    Dear BNC,

    I have a question for you, how hard can a protest be on our life socially? because some protests can be harmless to other people physically and emotionally and others can be the exact opposite. and I have never seen a protest happen on the news or in person, but I think that protest are another way of showing who you really are, because you show them your opinion on it.

    thank you for reading 😘

    sincerely,

      I agree. Because if you are involved in a riot, then it means you are aggressive and damage people's belongings to show your disapproval.

    there are many things that others may think about this. they could think that it is a bad idea to protest for the exact same reason.

    Hi Burnet news club
    A quick question to ask on protest is have you ever experienced being in a protest or have your family members ever experience being in a protest and do you think it worked or it was just a mini situation and it didn’t work as affectively

    Hiya BNC, Tom and Olivia, or if your a BNC user reading this then hi to you too!

    1. What is the difference between PROTEST and DISAPPROVAL?

    Answer: Protest always starts as disapproval. If you think back to the first session, where there was that pineapple pizza script - that started as disapproval. Fred was in disapproval, when he thought (and said to himself) that he didn't agree - disapproved - with pineapple on pizza. When he started shouting "BAN PINAPPLE!", convinced a chef and waitress to stop working, AND posted #BANPINEAPPLE on his social media - before getting shared 2,000 times. This is protest - when you DO something to SHOW your disapproval.

    2. What is similar about CHANGING THE WAY THINGS ARE DONE and CHANGING OPINIONS?

    Answer: Changing opinions means CHANGING THE WAY PEOPLE THINK ABOUT THAT PROTEST CAUSE - from "no we don't care about BLM (for example), why should we care that black people are being treated differently to us, WE'RE not black" - to "BLACK LIVES MATTER!! STOP TREATING PEOPLE DIFFERENTLY BECAUSE OF THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN!". Changing the way things are done, means ACTUALLY CHANGING WHAT IS HAPPENING - e.g. ACTUALLY STOPPING Climate Change, instead of just changing more people's thoughts on it.

    3. How does BLACK LIVES MATTER show STANDING UP FOR OTHERS?

    Answer: BLM shows standing up for others, as protesting FOR BLACK PEOPLE - even if you are black as well - you are protesting for people, the black people!

    4. How do we know if PROTESTS IN CHILE has worked?

    Answer: Firstly, there is no 'This has worked' and 'This hasn't worked'. You can never REALLY say 100% it HAS worked or HASN'T worked. Just sayin'! Let's look on both sides of the argument - you can see the protests in Chile HAVE worked as;

    A) It has been shown on the news ALL OVER THE WORLD,
    B) The government agreed to hold a vote whether there should be a new constitution or not,
    And , C) The new constitution will be drawn up by a group of polititions CHOSEN BY THE PEOPLE.

    On the other hand, here are the ways you can tell the protests in Chile HAVN'T worked because - HAVE THE PROTESTS STOPPED? No, I don't believe so.

    5. Who might think differently about PROTESTS IN BELARUS?

    Answer: There is one OBVIOUS answer: President Alexander Lukashenko himself! If the protests are STILL going (which they are) and Alexander is STILL the President (which he is) then HE obviously thinks differently than the protests in Belarus - otherwise he would of said that he's not going to be the president any more and was going to have a fair election!!

    My SHH questions:

    1. Why has SHH not been stopped yet?
    2. Who might not like SHH?
    3. What does SHH mean to you?

    Thanks for reading,

    The difference between changing opinions and protests that protests are raising awareness are making people aware of the situation. Protests are when you are trying to raise awareness about what you and a lot of people are annoyed about.

    The similarities between changing the way things are done and disapproval. Changing the way things are done make a difference were disapproval you don’t change anything you just express your opinion/ how you feel.

    Standing up for others shows Black Lives Matter because you are standing up for Black people and

    trying to make equality for everyone.

    We know a protest has worked because things will have changed e.g., new laws are made.

    Hunters don’t think about Elephant extinction because they just want the money for the ivory e.g., rhinoceros.

    Hello to all. I am a bit late I think but I would like to do this exercise.
    Question 1: What is the difference between standing up for others and protest?
    My answer: Standing up for others means when you think a person or a group of people are being treated badly and something is not fair, you stand up for them and support them to get some fairness and respect. For example if someone is bullied in your school, you help that person and stand up for her or him. But protest could be for something that you think is not fair to you as well and not just others and also can make problems for everyone. For example you protest for climate change because it can make issues for the whole world.
    Question 2: What is similar about extinction rebellion and black lives matter?
    My answer: they were both protests that happened in most countries at the same time and they were global and it was not just for a group of people, it was for a problem that can affect everyone.

    Question 3- How does protest show disapproval?
    My answer: When you protest about something means that you are not happy about it and you want it to change to get better. For example when J Biden won the election some people didn't like it and asked for reelection. But vandalism is not good.

    Question 4-How do we know if protest has/have worked?
    My answer: if you see the problem you protested for has changed or if you see a lot of news about it on tv and internet that means it has worked.
    Question 5:Who might think differently about black lives matter?
    My answer: Some people started to say ALL lives matter! I didn't agree with this at that time. But now I would agree because of pandemic and because everybody's life in in danger.

    My shh questions:
    1- Do you think shh works better than shh for local problems in your village for example?
    2- Do you think shh is more difficult in countries with no internet?

    Thank you for reading

    1. What is different about Protesting and Disagreeing
    Answer disagreeing on something when you don't agree on someones opinion like the pineapple on pizza text the people didn't agree on putting pineapple on pizza. Protesting is when you say or do something to show that you strongly disapprove on something.
    2.What is Different about knowing if a protest worked or not
    Answer you see on the news like if you have protested to not do the vaccine on the news it would begin to change.Parents were saying to not close schools, But scientist were saying the corona was getting spread the most in schools so they had to close the schools down.
    3. What is Different about disaproved or aproved
    Answer Disaproved is when you type something out on a website sometimes your comment has to be approved or disaproved if your comment is Disaproved by someone who owns the website your comment can be offensive or not appropriate or contains private info. Approved means like if you have done a test it needs to be approved by your teacher Disaproved and Approved are almost the same but they have diffrent meaning.

    1.What is different about Disagreeing and protesting
    Answer when we done the pineapple on pizza text the people didn't agree on having pineapple on the pizza.Protesting is when you do or say something to show that you strongly disagree on something on a someones opion like some people what schools to close and some don't.
    2.What is different about knowing your protest has worked or didn't work.
    Answer like some mums and dads want their kids to go to school because its for their education and its for the bets that they go to school and learn you will know if your protest didn't work as the schools would be open. But as they want their kids to go to school the scientists on the news think that kids should not go to school as they have found out that corona is more likely to spread in schools to know if you protest had work it would be on the news and the school would be shut.
    3.What is simalar to Disapproved and Approved
    Answer Approve is when you have posted something like some soical medias have pictures like facebook have to be Approved by the owner of the website.Disapproved is when like Approved when your picture is approved but disapproved means the picture is unaproprite has voilnce in it or might give where you live.

    Hello BNC!!!!!
    Does protest work?
    Yes and No .
    Yes- because protest can make way for good change.
    No- because when taken the wrong way protest can make way for bad change. It also when out of control can cause chaos.
    I just wanted to say that I have learnt a lot since session 1.Before this, I thought that protest was JUST a bad thing because on the news etc they only show chaotic protests when I now think they should show peaceful ones also.

    SSH Questions:

    What is the difference between protests and raising awareness?
    Protests are when people act on things they believe in and do things to change what is happening. Raising awareness is letting other people know about the issue you are protesting for.

    What is similar about Black Lives Matter and End Sars?

    They are both protesting about racism and that the police are being racist towards black people. They are also about police brutality.

    How does protest show disapproval?

    People protest because they disapprove of certain matters and take action on it.

    How do we know if protests in Chilihave worked?

    Prices of transport will go down and there would be more support for less fortunate people.

    Who might think differently about Protests in Belarus?

    The government and Alexander Lukashenko.
