Teaching Sensitive Topics
We have created a list of links to resources and possible themes to introduce the topic or important historic figures to investigate. There are numerous literary opportunities on these topics, as well as films like “The Theory Of Everything” and “Imitation Game” that take a biographical approach to people in modern history.
Please note we are aware that in some international settings, teaching some of these topics may not be applicable.
