Understanding religious beliefs other than one’s own is a key element of tolerance, since faith traditions often define a significant part of a person’s identity.

In Britain, the spectrum of religious diversity is a part of our culture as a whole, and religions can sometimes be at the center of political debate. Over recent years there has been growing concern about incidents of anti-Semitism and Islamophobia increasing in the UK, which have sparked much controversy and debate about ideas of religious freedom and tolerance.

Therefore this webinar session seeks to help teachers with guidance about how to introduce issues concerning religious prejudice and discrimination to their pupils, and how classroom discussions can enhance the religious literacy of young people.

Specifically, this webinar will help teachers:
1. Understand what they need to know about anti-Semitic and Islamophobic attitudes in British society;
2. How to promote tolerance and respect among your pupils for all people, including religious minorities in our communities;
3. How to develop religious literacy in children and young people’s lives and help them learn about religious prejudice as well as racism;
4. Offer practical activities that teachers can use in the classroom
