Building Resilience: Extremism and terrorism as reported in the media

Key stage 3 (ages 11-14) • Sensitive & Controversial Issues • Curriculum planning

Helen Blachford, Curriculum Leader PSCHE, led work on The ACT Building Resilience Project at Priory School in Portsmouth.

This project focused on critical thinking, problem-solving and enquiry skills through three Citizenship lessons with two Year 9 classes. Pupils explored concepts of democracy, rule of law and rights and responsibilities in the context of media bias/falsification in reporting about Islam and Islamophobia.
