Hi I've been asked to teach a topic related to human rights to Year 9's that I find uncomfortable even as an adult. I can teach difficult and emotive subjects and in my capacity as a geographer I've done it numerous times. The problem is that the course is being planned by a sociologist and the content shows real executions and murders and asks students to research about real murders which are really distrubing. I looked through some of the suggested clips and nearly gagged. I couldn't sleep after watching one of them and it kept going around my mind. I don't want kids learning about this and I don't want to teach it. I spoke to the teacher and have offered to create resources for the topic but it's fallen on deaf ears. They say that like it or not, the kids will go off and look at this stuff so better let them do it in class - I don't agree. Advice?
