Islamophobia: Show Racism the Red Card
Source: http://www.natre.org.uk/cc/#8 – See below for details
In this online DVD trailer and teacher Education Pack from Show Racism
the Red Card, young people and top footballers share their experiences
and thoughts on the topic of Islamophobia. Suitable for work with upper
KS 2 to adult:
The DVD trailer provides a stimulating starting point to engage young
people in valuable discussion about Islamophobia, the fear of Islam;
perhaps the most stark example of prejudice in Britain today. The
materials are designed to help young people:
The Education Pack activities are organised around four broad areas:
- challenge stereotypes and prejudice towards Muslims
- gain a greater historical and political awareness of the climate, which has enabled Islamophobia to flourish in recent times.
Extension activities are included together with a glossary of
Islamic terms and the pack provides quotes, discussion points and
suggested activities to encourage informed and thoughtful
participation. Teachers can adapt these activities to match RE learning
objectives and the needs of students, helping them to develop their
understanding of Islam in today's world and to be able to think for
themselves and recognise where others may be trying to influence them.
