Welcome to The NO Project free downloadable teaching material on human trafficking and modern slavery. The lesson plans address different aspects of the crime, and we approach each real-life narrative with respect and non-sensationalism. The lessons have been specifically designed for older teenagers, young adults and adults and are used by both first and second speakers of English. There is no required sequence in that each lesson is ‘stand alone’ and independent.
The Teacher’s Guide
The gentle, step-by-step Teacher’s Guide will assist and inform you, so that you can move through the different stages of the lesson with knowledge, purpose, creativity and sensitivity – but please feel free to adapt the material to suit your needs. Slavery is one of the most intimate, cruel, exploitative violations of a human being. Please be aware of this as you select material most appropriate for your students. These lessons are written with respect: we dedicate this educational outreach to the millions of humans who have been enslaved, violated and exploited over the centuries. Time to act. Time to change. We thank you for your courage, integrity and willingness to incorporate this content into your lessons. You are a credit to our profession and a gift to your students and the global community. Your simple choice to implement this material could impact a life.
Beyond the Class – Autonomous Learning Resources (approx 2 hours for each lesson)
The self-access component of each lesson provides carefully-selected, relevant resources and suggestions for students who would like to learn more in their own time. The lessons also provide the perfect basis for collaborative project-based actions or personal projects that focus on modern slavery or trafficking.
So, download the material and enjoy teaching these lessons. Each lesson is creative, powerful, informative and includes innovative ideas for creating lasting personal impact beyond the classroom.
