The GOT project is a series of four lessons, which explores the issues around the understanding of Islam. The resource includes a DVD and lesson plans which has been used by Year 9 and 10 learners in schools in Cardiff.
The four main core objectives are:
• To counter intolerance and extremism
• To promote knowledge and understanding of the non-violent messages of Islam
• Reduce prejudice and discrimination between faiths and cultures
• Develop respect and tolerance for all
Staff and learners stated that their knowledge and understanding of others had improved and that the project had made them reflect on the issues of prejudice, discrimination and intolerance.
