A new teaching resource has come under fire for advising British kids as young as seven to “write a letter to a terrorist” to understand their motives.
The guide, Talking About Terrorism, is aimed at helping students to understand the threat of terrorism, and attempts to explain the reasons behind terrorist acts.
“Structured in a question and answer format, ‘Talking About Terrorism: Responding to Children’s Questions’ will help teachers to face the most difficult questions children ask. Parents will also find it invaluable,” reads the book’s description.
The teaching resource was published just weeks before the Manchester Arena suicide bombing and describes the mass murder of civilians as a “type of war”, according to The Daily Express.
