Exploring issues of extremism and radicalisation through enquiry - the ACT Building Resilience Project
Exploring issues of extremism and radicalisation through enquiry
Ryan Mason, Assistant Head Teacher and Teacher in Charge of Citizenship, led work on The ACT Building Resilience Project at Addey and Stanhope School in London.
This project focused on critical thinking through six Citizenship lessons with Year 9 pupils. Pupils explored concepts of extremism, radicalisation and terrorism from different perspectives and carried out independent and small group research using enquiry methodologies.
