Exploring extremism - the ACT Building Resilience Project
Lorellie Canning, Head of Citizenship, led work on The ACT Building Resilience Project at St Bede's & St Joseph’s Catholic College in Bradford.
This project focused on critical thinking, problem solving and enquiry skills, and taking informed and responsible action. It involved five Citizenship lessons with four Year 9 and 10 classes. Pupils explored concepts of extremism and terrorism and the role of the media through critical engagement with real life case studies.
