Community cohesion and the prevention of violent extremism
A list of resources for teachers to use in the classroom


  Resource Title and Teacher Guidance Brief Description of the Resource Accessibility
1 Cultural Diversity As a teaching tool using PowerPoint slides, this resource is an excellent means to give students a creative, presentation opportunity to celebrate and promote diversity within a community cohesion framework. The benefit of this resource is that PowerPoint is accessible in all schools and its students' own images, photos, ideas and experiences that are used as stimulus for raising awareness about stereotypes and facilitating discussions about a variety of themes.
See attached example Microsoft PowerPoint slides
KS 2, 3&4
Fully accessible, however SEN teachers may need to differentiate to meet needs of individuals.
2 The British (serves 60 million) This poem by Benjamin Zephaniah, illustrates how cultures are made up of 'ingredients' and how cohesion is formed from diversity. This resource can be used as a stimulus in a number of ways and teachers can select relevant approaches for their own students. As a result of in-depth work and classroom activities, students should have an enjoyable literary experience that provides them with insights into the positive benefits of a diverse community.

KS 2, 3&4
Fully accessible.
3 I have a dream This iconic speech by Martin Luther King resonates around the world as an appeal for minority aspiration, social justice and in opposition to extremist attitudes. Teachers can focus on how the speech appeals to both a call for action and recognition of the political complexity of social injustice. This resource can be used both as a starting point for teachers to initiate discussion, and for more in-depth and successive work which students can actively participate in.

KS 3&4
Fully accessible, however SEN teachers may need to differentiate to meet needs of individuals (due to large amount of text in resource).
4 Romeo and Juliet This play by William Shakespeare can be brought into a sharp focus to consider how extreme violence and attitudes can lead to tragedy and death, especially amongst young people. Its classic setting and distance from modern-day conflicts makes for a dramatic and thought-provoking space in which teachers will be able to stimulate discussions that are constructive and relevant, and enable students to explore concepts such as identity, prejudice, intolerance, conflict, 'family' and 'social groups' and 'gangs'.
