“A panel of our Education Advisers (Head Teachers) looked at the resources and they felt that the package should be highly recommended for use in schools because the schemes of work and individual lesson materials are so well constructed. They felt that there would be no need for teachers to do any extra work because you have everything necessary on the website.
"The advisers also commented that teachers would be extremely well supported with the website as everything is so expertly presented. They thought that teachers would be able to view the materials, read through the background notes, download lesson materials and use the electronic materials straight onto their classroom screens in order to teach a range of outstanding lessons.”

"Miriam's family has set up a charity, the Miriam Hyman Memorial Trust. They fund an eye hospital in India and an anti-radicalisation programme for 11 - 14 year olds, helping kids to see both literally and figuratively. They deserve support."

"A good education for the twenty-first century must equip children to navigate their way through complex, difficult situations at every level from the family to global events. “Miriam's Vision” is an ambitious, modern and lively resource which helps young people to understand the contemporary world in all its diversity and complexity."
Professor Chris Husbands, Director UCL Institute of Education, 7 July 2015
“Young people growing up in a fast changing world face new insecurities and dangers. There are no easy answers but “Miriam’s Vision” is a great resource to help people understand how to navigate this complexity.”

“I couldn't agree more about the role of the arts and humanities in promoting respect, tolerance and empathy. I am very happy for you to add my name to those who endorse the History module.
Professor Michael Wood, Manchester University, 2016
“I’ve been a teacher for twelve years and I must say the lessons have been excellent. I enjoyed them and so did the students. Perfectly organised – which is just what a teacher wants. We have teachers outside the Humanities teaching Citizenship so it makes a real difference when the lessons are straightforward with so many amazing activities.”

“Miriam’s Vision should be incorporated into basic teacher training. It is crucial to learn how to deal with difficult and upsetting situations because it is a preparation for life.”

“Before the lessons everyone in my class thought all Muslims were terrorists and this made me very sad as I’m Muslim myself. After the lessons everyone realised this is a mistake and we are now all much happier. It has made a big difference to my life.”

“The whole experience was amazing because there was so much that was new; designing and creating a sculpture with a team we hadn’t met before; having your views actually listened to and listening to other students, working with materials we hadn’t used before. It was all very challenging but we met the challenges ourselves and came up with good finished products.
