Attitudes to treatment of criminals

In this lesson we will begin our ninth lesson in the unit on religion, crime and punishment. We will be focusing on Christian, Muslim and non-religious views on the attitudes to the treatment of criminals. Please make sure you have a pen and paper ready, and have cleared a quiet space for you to work in. If you have the TV or music on and can turn it off, please do. If you are not using your mobile phone for the lesson, it is best to put it to one side so you are not distracted by it.
