‘Conscience’ and ‘Conviction’ – World War I learning resources
Teaching about World War I should be about more than reciting poems about muddy battlefields. ‘Conscience’ and ‘Conviction’ have been created to highlight a selection of moral paths taken as a result of the war. Both provide opportunities to reflect on the steps we need to take for a world without war. These materials are based on the work of Don Rowe, teacher, writer and co-founder of the Citizenship Foundation.
Learners pursue a critical thinking project, considering how people responded to the questions they faced and exploring their own reactions.
