Peer Assessment Checklist
Character Group members
Did the group explain clearly
why they personally value this natural area?
how development will affect nature?

choice than development in this case?
Did the group base their argument mainly on
Short term interests
Long term interests
Did this group’s argument convince you that the natural area should be conserved?
Taking it further …
Instead of designing this activity as an Awareness Day role-play, you could turn it into a debate. Develop role cards for members of the community who support the development of the shopping centre, and let both groups present their arguments for and against the development. Encourage the learners to look for a “win-win” solution that satisfies the needs for both conservation and development.
