PSHE/Citizenship KS3 & GCSE: Gang life - Ceejay’s story

We follow 17-year-old Ceejay as she tries to leave her gang life behind her.

She gets advice from Gwenton Sloley who was in a notorious gang himself, and is now working with kids like Ceejay to try to steer them away from the gang lifestyle.

She visits a psychotherapist and talks with a former girl gang member who has managed to find a clear path ahead.

This clip is from the series Gang Life.

Teacher Notes

Students could try to put themselves in Ceejay's shoes by creating a role-play around the difficulty of breaking away from gang life.

Challenge the students to use their individual role-plays as the basis for a short script that they could act out in front of the class.

Curriculum Notes

This clip is suitable for teaching PSHE and Citizenship at KS3, GCSE/KS4 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland and National 3, National 4 and National 5 in Scotland.
