Talk – Freeze Frame


Kinaesthetic approach to aid discussion

Set Up:
Start in a circle and then break out into pods – move tables so there is room to manoeuvre.

How it works:
Students are asked to create a freeze frame of a topic, story or statement. A freeze frame is a point at which the ‘camera’ has stopped – it has a before and after that are not seen by the audience (hence it is different from a still image). Groups then show their freeze frame to the rest of the class who guess what it is and then go on to discuss around it.

I find it works well in getting students to engage with History or RE.
