Overall this was a really successful activity. Not only did it meet the requirements of the NCEA standard by allowing the boys to reflect on their own social responsibility, but it was also a reality check for some of the students in the class. I am planning on trying this with some of my junior classes later in the year when the 'honeymoon' period is over!
