Films and Activities
The Response Ability teaching and learning materials include films, activities, student handouts and further information.
Most recently, Response Ability has teamed up with the Hunter Institute of Mental Health’s annual high school drama competition MindPlay to bring you a fresh and engaging way to introduce and explore concepts relating to social and emotional wellbeing in your pre-service teacher education courses.
This new resource consists of:
- An Australian 15-minute drama piece titled Deep Breaths which explores the themes of resilience, anxiety and grief and loss;
- Detailed lecturer notes, student activities and suggested answers;
- Essential skills for teachers for professional communication regarding mental ill-health.
This resource is available to all lecturers and course coordinators in universities across Australia for use in pre-service teacher education courses.
