“[Extreme Dialogue] is so good because it has enabled staff to train sixth form students to successfully and thoughtfully deliver the project to younger students with confidence, sensitivity and appropriate challenge,”
Alan Fraser, Assistant Headteacher, Cranford Community College, Hounslow, a school which has been pioneering Extreme Dialogue through a peer-to-peer model.
“Extreme Dialogue provides a cross section of reference points, that can help provide fresh understanding within and between communities.
“It is not preachy in tone, but rather takes real stories and allows participants to connect with them and draw their own conclusions about the consequences of extremism.
“The compelling voices [it features] clearly explore the vulnerabilities which can lead to extremism, and demonstrates the many challenges associated with isolation and transition.”
Jon Nicholas, Head of Curriculum at Tim Parry
Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation.
“Only by discussing extremism openly can we ensure young people understand its corrosive impact.”
Henry Tuck, Head of Education, ISD
“Teaching Extreme Dialogue to children between the ages 11-16 has been an eye opening experience.”
