Terrorist or Freedom Fighter: Whom Can We Trust? Grade 10 Lesson. Schools of California Online Resources for Education (SCORE): Connecting California's Classrooms to the World.
In the past 50 years many political organizations have attempted to seek redress from repressive governments. Many have used methods considered to be terrorism. The United Nations (UN) is interested in establishing a set of guidelines dealing with the prevention of terrorism. This unit focuses on several questions that attempt to define terrorism. Students will research a historical or current political organization that has attempted to affect a tremendous change, label the political organization either terrorist or freedom fighter based on its goals and actions, and develop both a definition of terrorism and a policy for dealing with terrorists without violating human rights as established in the UN Declaration of 1948. Students are provided with background information, detailed instructions, online resources, and reflection questions. The teacher's notes describe the unit's purpose, explain its correlation to history/social science standards, and suggest day-by-day teaching strategies. (BT)
