Remembering Srebrenica Scotland has been working with secondary teachers and university students to create a comprehensive, classroom ready, useable resource.
The lessons are designed for S2/S3 and created to be used in a versatile manner. There are nine main lessons that can be taught as a full course within the BGE History curriculum, as well as extension lessons. Alternatively, teachers can choose to teach specific stand-alone lessons. There are straightforward, easy to access Learning & Teaching grids to follow.
The content can also be used by other areas of the curriculum and school life: teaching Morality and Conflict in RMPS, Creating an IDL with History, Modern Studies and Geography on inequalities? Reading Anne Frank’s diary in English and want to link to other genocides after the Holocaust? Discussing intolerances and bigotry in PSE? Want to use survivors’ testimonies in Drama? Want to draw portraits of inspirational people in Art & Design? Rights Respecting Schools assembly idea – how were children impacted by the war and genocide? Holocaust Memorial Day event. White Armband Day event. The possibilities and ideas are endless because the content and material is readily available.
All lessons are connected to the Curriculum for Excellence Framework through experiences, outcomes and benchmarks. Teaching about Srebrenica links to Learning for Sustainability and pupils’ entitlement to learn about global citizenship and human rights, as does the inclusion of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, which Scotland is moving to being the first home nation to adopt into domestic law. TheGTCS Standards of social values and justice can also be shown through this approach.

Great to see Sabina whose powerful testimony reminded us that genocide doesn't start overnight but with ordinary people who begin to dehumanise others. Great to hear politicians & young people determined to learn lessons of past. @Hello_Sabina @ScotGovFM @ChristinaSNP @HMD_UK
