An Introduction to Standing Up For Democracy

Teaching Students to Stand Up For Democracy

Join us for a webinar series where we will examine Facing History & Ourselves’ newest resource, Standing Up for Democracy, written to support the teaching of Citizenship and PSHE education in UK classrooms.

Drawing on historical case studies, such as the Bristol Bus Boycott and the Battle of Cable Street, the 15-lesson series encourages students to explore questions of identity, prejudice and belonging, consider the importance of protecting human rights, reflect upon the values that are critical to a respectful, multicultural society, and be inspired to Stand Up for our Democracy.

This webinar will:

  • Introduce you to the key themes and topics:

    • The Individual and Society - What makes each of us who we are?

    • We and They - How do beliefs about difference influence the way we see, and choose to interact with, others?

    • Understanding Human Rights - What rights should belong to every human being?

    • Choosing to Participate - What must we do to create a more just and compassionate society?

  • Highlight the classroom-ready PowerPoints that accompany these lessons

  • Model teaching strategies to foster students’ critical thinking and opportunities for reflection

 This webinar supports the teaching of Citizenship and PSHE education in classrooms in the United Kingdom.
