10th August 2015


12 August is International Youth Day and to promote the values it represents, we’ve picked out five resources to help young people engage and participate with different societal issues.


1. For younger pupils, try this A4 reading worksheet to introduce and explain the purpose of International Youth Day, supported with Widgit symbols.


2. Ideal as a starter, this political literacy crossword focuses on citizenship and participation.


3. Teaching older students? Take a look at the DfE’s Rock enrol resource pack. Its aim is to encourage young people to care about politics and register to vote.


4. With recommended viewing ideas for primary and secondary, this Into Film guide suggests debating motions on a variety of democracy-related issues.


5. Using mobile phones as a case study, this sustainability lesson shows how our social and economic choices can impact others around the world.
