039 – The Expert

  1. Get into pairs and create a scene where one person is a ‘reporter’ and the other person is the ‘expert’. Pick a false premise/idea and, using the ‘expert’ to give your evidence, report on the topic as if it was true. 
  2. Share your report with the rest of the group.


Examples: ‘Chewing gum can make you change your skin colour’ or ‘People with brown eyes are 70% more likely to get in a car accident’, etc.

Notes: This exercise can either be improvised or scripted (give participants around 10 mins to rehearse). 

This leads to a conversation around how information, where it is known to be false, can be given credence by the way it is reported on.
