KEY QUESTIONS
What are the things which influence human beings to act in a way that is considered ‘moral’? What situations can undermine ‘moral’ behaviour?

We want students to realise that although we often assume that we wouldn’t behave in the ways that people do during genocide, war or other violent social upheaval, we are not innately different to those who find themselves caught up in such circumstances. The aim here is to identify the conditions and beliefs in our own societies which help to keep most people from being violent towards others.

AIMS AND PURPOSE
For students to identify the conditions and beliefs which underpin relatively peaceful societies (perhaps including our own).
To identify that violence or peacefulness are conditional rather than racial attributes.
To have a clear understanding of the concept of ‘moral inhibitions to violence’ and the elements that contribute to these protective inhibitions.
To understand that changes in circumstances could change the way we behave.

WHAT DO I GET?
A two-page lesson plan in PDF format, covering the key questions, aims, resources needed and a detailed outline of the suggested method and activities.
