What's it like to be a Muslim in the UK in 2018?

What's it like to be a Muslim in the UK in 2018?

KS3 RE lesson on the positive and negative experiences Muslims face in the UK in 2018. Pupils work through the basics of Islamic belief and ideas, then use these to establish what positive opportunities Muslims experience in modern Britain, and how difficult some things like just eating in MacDonalds or doing PE at school during Ramadan can be. Pupils then consider further reasons why Muslims can face difficulties linked to how people have misinterpreted the term Jihad in the media. The outcome is an extended piece of writing. Please note that the true/false cards and the sorting statements are from a resource by Danielle99 and so this resource is free - I’d rather not capitalise from other’s work!

A Refugee's Story: Lesson Plan & Film

A Refugee's Story: Lesson Plan & Film

See here for the accompanying lesson plan. This short film tells the story of Mohammed Alsaleh, a young Syrian refugee granted asylum in Canada in 2014. After fleeing torture and imprisonment by the Assad regime, he is rebuilding his life. Mohammed counsels newly-arrived Syrian refugee families with the same Vancouver-based NGO that aided him during his own resettlement process. Like Mohammed, these families have left loved ones behind and are struggling to adapt to a new land, finding resilience and hope for a new beginning. Like thousands of other newly-resettled refugees, Mohammed has been striving to bring his family to safety in Canada. Millions of Syrians are currently displaced within Syria’s borders and in neighboring countries. Students watch a 19-minute documentary that tells the story of Mohammed Alsaleh, a young Syrian refugee granted asylum in Canada in 2014, who is now counseling newly arrived refugees. In this lesson, students explore the themes of cultural displacement, human rights, and resilience. Reflective writing prompts are also included for students to demonstrate their understanding of the story. In the accompanying lesson (see link above), students explore the themes of cultural displacement, human rights, and resilience through classroom discussions.
