HOW VOXPOP WORKS

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A VOXPOP ROLE-PLAY?

SET UP

Once you've selected a role-play, you can create a session and share it with your class. Put the classroom display on your shared classroom screen. 

A VOXPOP role-play can usually be run in one 60-minute session or split into two 40-minute sessions.

HARNESS THE POWER OF ROLE-PLAY

CREATE MEMORABLE LEARNING EXPERIENCES

"When you put kids in a position where they have to adopt a scenario and be somebody else, it’s what they remember. Their regular boring days in class they don’t remember."

- Richard Kermond, U.S. History teacher

GIVE STUDENTS
VOICE

"It reminds you that people like you can push laws into place...not only that it’s controlled by the government, but it also can be controlled by the people."

- Student, after playing VOXPOP

UNDERSTAND
MULTIPLE PERSPECTIVES

“VOXPOP really gets to the heart of the issue, that there’s multiple perspectives, and the only way to see it is to play it out."​

- A.P. U.S. History Teacher

WHAT TEACHERS SAY

"Over the past year, even amidst the COVID Pandemic, I used several of the VOXPOP activities with my high school students, with impressive results.  As a thirty year veteran educator, I have used a number of interactive activities, none matching the level of engagement I observed in my students.  Most importantly, the VOXPOP activities reinforce Deep Learning as outlined by the global partnership, New Pedagogies for Deep Learning (NPDL).  Through these activities, students have the opportunity to develop the Six Global Competencies of Character, Citizenship, Collaboration, Communication, Creativity and Critical thinking in a way that they find enjoyable - a teacher's dream!"
