Sometimes young people may come across news that impacts their emotions. This classroom resource, part of the NewsWise unit of work created by The Guardian Foundation, explores how to manage emotional responses when interacting with the news and looks at how young people can report concerns or seek support and advice. It is suitable for upper primary and lower secondary and includes a lesson plan, classroom activities and a fictional case study.


A note about our third-party resources

All third-party resources hosted on Educate Against Hate have undergone a quality-assurance process, a due diligence assessment and content review before being added to the site, so you can have confidence that you’re using trusted, accurate, high-quality content.  

You should use any resources on this website at your own discretion. When selecting resources and materials to use, schools may find it helpful to review guidance produced by the Department for Education on using external agencies.
