Classroom Ideas

This clip could be used when discussing racism and different ways to approach it. Ask the class: "What can you do to help stop racism? What consequences does it have for a community?" Pupils could answer Chetan's question in their books. (How would you feel if people were racist to you?). The teacher could challenge students' views by asking them to consider why people might have a different opinion to them. If possible, provide students with an opportunity to study the school's anti-racism policy.
