Project one – Young Dragons
Page 1.1
Summary
Young Dragons is a project that provides an opportunity for
students to explore the importance and potential of public
transport, while improving on their speaking, listening and
persuasive writing skills.
Students will work in groups to perform a role-play based on BBC2’s
Dragons’ Den
Students will negotiate a list of requirements for the perfect mode
of transport, taking into consideration matters such as global warming,
parking, health and safety, speed of travel and cost
The unit will involve planning, debating and learning techniques of
persuasion and reconciliation
It will be an exciting, high-impact unit that will build relationships and
confidence, and raise awareness of transport issues, which is firmly
linked to the National Curriculum for English
Students will initially debate the issues relating to transport, identifying
conflicts and concerns. They will then split into two groups, the Dragons
and the Inventors.
The Inventors will design the ‘ideal’ form of transport, negotiating and
compromising until they reach a whole-group consensus.
The Dragons will prepare to be a judging panel. They need to agree on
a set of criteria against which the Inventors’ designs can be judged.
The unit will conclude with a class debate, in which the teacher can
formally assess the class on speaking and listening. Also provided are
materials to allow students to self- and peer-assess.
