Educate Against Hate works hard to help teachers and school leaders protect their students from the dangers of Islamist and far-right extremist ideologies. The Educate Against Hate website is a gold mine of useful information and teaching resources, however awareness of it is low and it’s a nightmare to navigate.
So we created posters for staff rooms and a film for teachers’ conferences to help explain what resources and ideas are available on the website. We’ve developed teaching resources to provide creative ways to protect students from extremism and help them understand the principles of a tolerant society and fundamental British values.
We were asked to help teachers get students thinking about how the radicalisation process works in order to protect them from harmful influences. So, we developed a radicalisation story that highlighted how subtle and manipulating the process can be. We used a text conversation between a young vulnerable woman and a radical protagonist.
We were asked to help teachers get students thinking about how the media can distort the news and subtly create propoganda, taking facts and manipulating them with their own bias. We took a father and child story and reported it from different far-right and left wing perspectives then asked teachers to help students debate how facts can be misinterpretated.
