PRIOR TO USING THIS RESOURCE
Due to the potentially sensitive and difficult nature of discussing issues of racism with students, it isadvisable to do some preparatory work before using our resources. This should include the setting ofground rules before the session(s). Whilst every participant should be encouraged to express theiropinions and feelings freely, it is important to ensure discussions are objective and that no sessionsbecome a platform for personal, racist or offensive remarks.
Students need to be aware that racism, bullying and name calling should never be tolerated.
