I am currently conducting some research on pupils’ perceptions of terrorism and am interesting in gathering some more general data on the experiences RE teachers have had with this topic. My research so far has provided some interesting results, but I would also be interested to hear of your experiences with the topic, and any comments/concerns that you may have – or about any resources that you have found particularly useful for your teaching.
Welcome to the cafe. I’m sure this will have come up for many RE teachers in recent years. In the meantime, we have a thread where teachers have discussed how Islamaphobia after a tragic event has been dealt with in the classroom which you might also like to read through.
By the way, I have just begun a thread looking at how we can combat negative stereotypes without simply replacing them with positive ones. So any insights you can offer on that thread from your own work would be great!! 🙂
