Hard Questions: Exploring Controversial Issues with Young People
This interactive session focuses on exploring controversial issues with young people in divided societies. Dr Judy Pace (University of San Francisco) will provide conceptual and practical tools based on her book, Hard Questions: Learning to Teach Controversial Issues, and cross-national scholarship. The book presents case studies of teacher preparation in NI, the US, and England. Audience members (teachers, youth/community workers, school leaders and those who engage in cross-community encounter groups) will engage in activities and discussion directly related to their practice.
