Our ‘Let’s Discuss‘ resources are designed to help teachers facilitate difficult classroom conversations in secondary schools. This resource pack can help you discuss Islamist extremism with your students.

Knowing how to explain complex topics such as extremism and terrorism can be daunting for teachers. This resource pack contains teacher guidance, a short video, PowerPoint slides and a fictional case-study. The video is available to introduce students to key ideas and vocabulary. Teachers can show the full video and pause at key points for discussion, or use the shorter snippets to focus on certain themes.

A fictional case-study suitable for students can be used to build understanding of and resilience to the grooming techniques used by radicalisers.

Separate resources are also available explaining the extreme-right wing, fundamental British values and extreme left-wing, anarchist and single-issue extremism.
