Post Primary Resources

In this section you will find resources that are useful for addressing inter-culturalism within the classroom. However, any lesson can be an intercultural lesson by making space for the diverse cultures within our classrooms.

We can do this by:

  • Seeking the views of all our students and getting to know them
  • Using resources from a range of cultures
  • Talking openly about ethnicity and racism
  • When intercultural conflict happens, use it to help everyone learn
  • Recognising that our own cultural values will differ from our students – their cultural values are as legitimate as ours

Please see the Quick Guide for Integrating Yellow Flag Themes to the Post Primary Curriculum

To learn more about being an intercultural educator, do the on-screen course ‘Yellow Flag Self Awareness Training’, which has been sent to Yellow Flag Schools. We also recommend that teachers read the NCCA resource: Intercultural Education in the Post Primary School

Key themes within intercultural education are:

  • Identity and Belonging
  • Similarity and Difference
  • Human Rights and Responsibility
  • Discrimination and Equality
  • Conflict and Conflict Resolution
