Forgiving the Unforgivable PPT

Forgiving the Unforgivable PPT

This PowerPoint presentation is the second of three lessons focussing on Forgiving the unforgivable, exploring the story of Kemal Pervanic and his experiences of incarceration in the Bosnian War. For the accompanying lesson plans and student booklet (plus resources for the other lessons) please visit: Within this lesson students will learn about Kemal’s experience in the Omarska camp and the reality that he personally knew many of his guards and interrogators as his teachers, friends and neighbours. Students will explore his journey towards forgiveness and the impact this had on him. They will learn about Kemal’s project in Bosnia to unite young people of all nationalities. The previous lesson introduces Kemal and his story. The third and final lesson explores the story of Mary Blewitt who lost 50 members of her family in the Rwandan Genocide. This resource can be used within Citizenship, Religious Studies and PSHE or within tutor time discussions or drop down days. Each lesson is designed to last approx one hour. Due to the content of this lesson, it should be facilitated by a staff member who knows the class well and can direct responses and use prompt questions to encourage healthy discussion, whilst maintaining a safe environment for all young people. The resources are available for free download at and include a lesson plan, student booklet and powerpoint for each lesson. In addition The Forgiveness Project organises speakers in schools for assembly, within class time or for special events. Please contact for further information.

Main - Preparatory Knowledge This section provides the preparatory knowledge required by students to participate in the activities and forms roughly the first half of the full lesson. The resources provided introduce students to the idea of climate change as a political and social issue, encouraging them to consider how international cooperation and government policy can impact the way climate change is managed.

The World News Crossword - February 11th, 2018

The World News Crossword - February 11th, 2018

The World News Crossword - February 11th, 2018 is a simple pdf document so it's easy to download and easy to print (or save to a USB for later). The World News Crossword is a crossword based on the events in last week's news. (And there are two more BONUS puzzles.) Norway's Winter Olympic team's chefs ordered 13,500 too many eggs. (They could've made a HUGE pavlova cake.) Justin Trudeau got in trouble for suggesting peoplekind instead of mankind. Germany's police investigated a teenager being burnt at a witches' festival. Formula 1 announced it will replace its grid girls, with grid kids, (but is that better or worse?) Paris' Eiffel Tower was closed because of snow. China's police started using sunglasses with cameras and face recognition software, to find criminals. An Indian woman accused her husband and brother in law of stealing her kidney. It wasn't all silly though... last week police in Scotland were called to a farm where a tiger was reportedly on the loose. That was serious. Oh but it was a big fluffy toy tiger on the loose.
