Detecting Religious Extremism - Downloadable Test

Detecting Religious Extremism - Downloadable Test

The quiz is a simple test that looks for indicators of religious extremism and exposure to Wahhabist Islam (the branch that has become associated with terrorism). If you fear individuals in your school may have issues in relation to religious extremism, this is the test for you.It should NOT be used as a whole school test: this would risk inflaming islamophobia in your school. It should be used with individual students with the utmost discretion and privacy, and only where previous evidence deems suspicion reasonable and rational. The ideal person to administer this test is the school counsellor or someone in a position of trust in relation to the individual student.The questionnaire is a tool for exploring basic attitudes to Britain, Western values, religious tolerance, and extremist attitudes. The odd numbers are all positive indicators, the even numbers are negative indicators ; you should be able to create a total score for a given student if you wish to create data using this test.Ideally, once the test is complete, a teaching professional or counsellor can discuss the students answers and clarify their meaning.Professionals are advised to handle this matter with the utmost delicacy.

Growth Mindset. Divergent Thinking Skills Questions

Growth Mindset. Divergent Thinking Skills Questions

Thinking Skills are so important. Students and adults are often led to believe that there is only one right answer to the question. This doesn’t have to be the case though and it is really useful for students to be reminded of this, encouraging them to keep an open mind and explore possibilities. This way of thinking is referred to as divergent thinking and it goes hand in hand with creativity. This resource provides questions that encourage students to problem solve and consider lots of answers to questions that don’t have just one right answer.Each question is presented on an individual page so that they can be printed out and students can jot down ideas, scribble notes and even draw diagrams if they feel like it.

Moral & Spiritual Development - KS1 & KS2 PSHE [Philosophy Boxes] Spirituality Morality SMSC

Moral & Spiritual Development - KS1 & KS2 PSHE [Philosophy Boxes] Spirituality Morality SMSC

The topic of this Philosophy Boxes download is 'Moral & Spiritual Development'. It is one of a series of Philosophy Boxes sessions designed, by request, for KS1-2 PSHE leaders (though it is also useful for KS3). You can save money by downloading the entire course of 20 sessions: which would constitute a significant part to your school's KS1/2 PSHE provision.The download comprises a P4C lesson/session that can be used multiple times with the same group.The Philosophy Boxes Method is a new approach to P4C designed for students in KS1, 2 & 3: it is graphically stimulating, engaging, and fun. This download is also suitable for older students: but the format was designed with younger students in mind. In this context: 'Philosophy Boxes' represents a more student-centred 'debate & discussion' approach to PSHE issues.The aim of Philosophy Boxes is to bring philosophy and critical thinking into every subject at every level: we believe that any subject becomes philosophy when students are asked the right questions and when they think about a topic hard enough and on the deepest (most fundamental) level. The Philosophy Boxes Method presents students with a set of 'mystery boxes', when a student selects one of the boxes they are presented with 1 of 21 discussion/debate activities [that use 1 of 8 different formats].The presentation has integrated AfL so that teachers can test knowledge at any point in the lesson. There are 10 different AfL slides to choose from. The design is colourful, animated, fun and engaging: all activities require movement and teachers can decide whether students are expressing their ideas purely verbally or by using post-it notes.The nature of the design is that it can be used for short sessions (5-10 minutes) or much longer sessions (up to 2 hours!) - it allows for classroom practitioners to be flexible and adaptable. It can, therefore, be used in lessons or as a tutor-time activity.The download includes a PowerPoint Show; if you would like an editable PPT presentation so that you can make your own 'Philosophy Boxes' presentation you will need to download the template here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/-the-philosophy-boxes-method-template-for-creating-your-own-philosophy-boxes-lessons-p4c-p4k-11463227A complete selection of Philosophy Boxes lessons can be found here: https://www.tes.com/resources/search/?&q=philosophy+boxes+godwin86You can also save money by purchasing lessons as bundles.This PSHE course is based around the topics listed on the BBC Bitesize Resources for KS1 & KS2 PSHE (their content can be used alongside these resources to bolster your PSHE provision, though this download does not require additional preparation or resources) [http://www.bbc.co.uk/education/subjects/zqtnvcw]
