A discussion-provoking drama surrounding a pupil stealing a knife This professional development video tells the story of a Year 11 pupil who snatches a knife from a food technology class, runs through the school and then threatens to cut her wrist.
The dramatisation of real events shows how the teacher reacts instinctively and races after the student. Did the teacher place all the other students in her class in danger by leaving them unattended with knives? Is it a teacher’s responsibility to restrain a pupil in this situation? Should there be checks and balances in place to prevent this type of scenario occuring?
By asking the viewer directly whether she reacted correctly, the teacher offers the opportunity for you to comment on her decisions and reactions.
