An Additional Resource to Teaching the Truth and Reconciliation Commission
In 2012, the IJR conducted a pilot research project with 25 Grade 12 history educators in the Western Cape on teaching the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission to their learners. The twin aims of the research were first, the design of lesson plans to provide content support in teaching a difficult and highly sensitive part of South African history, and secondly to explore appropriate support strategies that educators will need when mediating sensitive material in the classroom. The main output of the research is this basic resource guide on classroom support strategies.
