Humanism

Humanism

A lesson that explores what Humanism is, including descriptions, embedded videos, exploration of controversy surrounding Richard Dawkins and independent learning activities and discussions. Also, for the creatives out there, an extension which involves writing a rap. Learning questions include: What is Humanism? What do Humanists believe? What are the challenges of believing in Humanism? Extension: Is Humanism a religion? This is intended to help students explore and think with nuance about Humanism, the role of religion in the modern world (if indeed it has any), and is differentiated in its tasks: each question gets increasingly difficult and there are differentiated targets for video clips and activities.

Why did Martin Luther King oppose poverty, racism and war?

Why did Martin Luther King oppose poverty, racism and war?

Martin Luther King opposed poverty, racism and war. Why? What are the fundamental bases of morality and what does it mean to be human? These questions are explored in relation to King's fundamental belief that humans are created in the image of God. This is an extract from the resource pack 'Martin Luther King in the UK', produced by Newcastle’s Martin Luther King Peace Committee. It is available from my resource pages.
