Forgiveness and Justice PPT

Forgiveness and Justice PPT

This PowerPoint presentation is the third of three lessons focussing on Forgiveness and Justice. For the accompanying lesson plans and student booklet (plus resources for the other lessons) please visit: Designed for students in YR9 and above this lesson explores forgiveness and justice through the real life story of a victim and perpetrator of crime. Students will investigate the similarities and differences between criminal and restorative justice (RJ) and start to explore how empathy can affect our actions in times of trauma and conflict. The two lessons prior to this one introduce restorative justice and the potential impact on participants and communities through another story of restorative justice. 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 it’s content this lesson 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 can organise speakers in schools for assembly, within class time or for special events. Please contact for further information.
