CPD teaching controversial and sensitive subjects

Discussion in 'Religious Education' started by MilliScott, Jun 1, 2011.

  1. Hello RE teachers!
    The Association for Citizenship Teaching have got together with Three Faiths Forum, Amnesty International and the PSHE Association to create a cross-curriular CPD day for teachers of RE, PSHE and/or Citizenship. (We're all doing the work for free and the very modest fee just covers venue hire and catering.)
    At the end of the day you will feel equipped to facilitate constructive dialogue and critical engagement with the issues raised by the 10th anniversary of the September 11th bombings. You will have looked at how the media responds to the issues raised and how your pupils get information about current affairs. You will also have considered how you respond to pupils asking you personal questions and challenging your beliefs.
    The CPD will be transferable for addressing other controversial issues and there will be useful free resources picked by us for you enabling you to face the controversial and sensitive subjects connected with justice, faith, terrorism, media, democracy, identity, SMSC etc.
    Headteachers: This CPD helps your school meet requirements for community cohesion, Spiritual, Moral, Social & Cultural education as well as the whole school ethos! It is useful for tutor groups and assemblies as well as for Citizenship, RE and PSHE classes. The whole CPD day costs only £35.
    Info and booking for Manchester, 6th July 2011
    Info and booking for London, 7th July 2011
