In researching a recent report, I found a great reference for teachers on the Amnesty International UK site. Under a fairly specific and focused heading (Terrorism + Security – specifically focussing on September 11th), I found fantastic – generalized – material. Content includes lesson plans, resources and background notes on:
- Critically evaluating information,
- Teaching potential sensitive topics,
- Utilizing guest speakers effectively – including (for some reason, though it is good) how to identify propaganda.
I would highly recommend having a look from the perspective of professional development. There is as much here for teachers as students.
