This free resource includes a front cover should you wish to collate these documents into a booklet for pupils.

Pupils could use this table as a reference guide. It is a word document so it can be edited easily to add more sources should you wish. Also included is a task for pupils to attempt whereby they have to think critically about different types of sources of information in terms of their reliability. This could be transformed into a card activity or a carousel task.

This lesson incorporates the new findings from the 2018 Global Terrorism Index (GTI) (published 5/12/18) The link to the full report is here: http://visionofhumanity.org/app/uploads/2018/12/Global-Terrorism-Index-2018-1.pdf It is freely available to use and download. There are a series of questions based on the pdf in this resource - these are scanned pages from the GTI. You will need a blank world map for this task -I have included a selection of copyright-free world maps to choose from. The You tube video can help pupils to locate countries and gain some context about this issue. Discussion questions can follow about what pupil may feel connects many of these countries, such as unstable governments, recent or current conflicts, the presence of natural resources such as oil or ‘conflict minerals’, poor human rights abuses, etc. This task is a good introduction to the issue of international terrorism and can be used to support curricular work in this area, provide background information for extra-curricular clubs such as Model United Nations, Politics and Current Affairs Society and/ or debating. This resource can also be used for the international issues unit of both National 5 and Higher Modern Studies (SQA) or International Baccalaureate (IB) Global Politics.
