KS3 RE Lesson Plan – Is Religious Hatred As Bad As Racism? Explore Islamophobia And Media Portrayals Of Muslims

‘How do Muslims respond when they are pictured as terrorists or fanatics? Why does this happen? These learning ideas respond to the fact that British Muslims are often pictured as terrorists or fanatics in the media.

It’s unfair to think that you can sum up the lives and spirituality of two billion Muslims globally by referring to the deeply un-Islamic action of a suicide bomber, but it happens all the time. This is hot stuff in the classroom, so how could teachers break the stereotype?

This lesson has strong links to the duty schools have to promote community cohesion, and to Citizenship Education. Students will understand the idea of Islamophobia and consider what is wrong with some examples of it, think about whether religious hatred is as bad as racism, consider how prejudice can be reduced, apply values, beliefs and religious teachings to situations of prejudice or injustice’
