As of September 2020, PSHE will be joining the Prevent duty and the teaching of British values in becoming a legal requirement for all UK schools. To this end, we have created a new resource to support teachers in fulfilling these statutory obligations in a constructive and engaging way, which helps to develop social cohesion and to foster empathy within the student body.
Join us for a two-part webinar series exploring this new resource, Standing Up for Democracy, which is suitable for Citizenship, History, PSHE and Tutor time.
Drawing on historical case studies, including the Bristol Bus Boycott and the Battle of Cable Street, this 15-lesson series encourages students to explore questions of identity, prejudice, and belonging; to consider the importance of protecting human rights; to reflect upon the values that are critical to a respectful, multicultural society; and to be inspired to stand up for our democracy.
This webinar series will:
Use an exploration of identity to reflect on how preconceived differences and societal norms can dictate our behaviour (in Part 1: Looking Beyond the Single Story);
Reflect on social contracts and our obligations to others, whilst looking to and learning from those who have stood up to injustice in the past (in Part 2: Countering Discrimination);
Highlight the classroom-ready PowerPoints and teaching resources that accompany these fully-planned lessons; and
Model teaching strategies to foster students’ critical thinking and opportunities for reflection.
