Despite the counter-terrorism duties of schools (which include: assessing the risk of students being drawn into terrorism,working closely with your LA, training staff to identify at-risk children, keeping students safe online, and managing prayer and faith facilities), educating your students about terrorism is perhaps the most effective way to prevent radicalisation.
Which is why Brilliant Publications has produced
This practical handbook provides an objective resource to enable secondary school teachers to tackle the complex subjects of terrorism and radicalisation with confidence. It sets political violence within a broad context of perceived injustice, using familiar emotions of anger to introduce the notion of grievance (a precursor of all forms of terrorism).
The resource covers issues of citizenship, human rights, respect, civil and political engagement, identity, and how we identify with others while examining different forms of violence, from historical precedents to more recent examples of 21st century terrorism.
The handbook considers the causes and consequences of terrorism, what terrorists do, and why they do it; how to differentiate between the reasons, goals, and methods of terrorists; why the media and terrorism are inextricably linked; what makes terrorism start; and what factors bring the cycle of terrorism to an end.
Your students are invited to explore the process of reconciliation, taking Northern Ireland and South Africa as examples, as well as being encouraged to consider the definition of “terrorism” and debate fact and bias through examining the role of the media.
