Component Evaluation: Getting to Activism
Timing: 30 Minutes
Pat Capponi and veteran Vancouver activist and writer Lanny Beckman have never met each other, but wouldn’t they have an interesting conversation if they did? Imagine the two talking about the life moments and influences that helped push them from personal dislocation to empathy and then to activism? Dividing students into 2 groups, have one person in the first group take the role of Capponi and another from the second group take the role of Beckman in a conversation role play. Other group members can act as coaches, suggesting topics of conversation and possible responses.
