Brag Tag Book Editable

Brag Tag Book Editable

A Brag Tag book is a great alternative to Brag Tag necklaces.  I find using a Brag Tag book much more manageable for my little students, and it’s a great space saver.  When they receive a new Brag Tag I allow them to glue it into their book.   This purchase includes: Over one hundred different color combination and options       to choose from.  You are sure to find one that fits       your classroom. Fifteen black and white options Each book is editable to type the student’s name,       or you can choose to leave it blank and let them        write their name. There are also 2 different recording pages.  On         one page they simply glue their brag tag.  On         the other page they have room to write what their        brag tag means or why they received it. To make the books you can print the front cover on card stock and use a plain piece of card stock for the back.  Then cut all the pages in half and bind the books together using a binding machine.  The books can also be printed double sided and stapled together. If you only have a black and white printer you can use colored paper to give those black and white designs a pop of color! If you have any comments, questions, concerns, or suggestions please contact me. Brittany      Mixed Up Markers

Heroes of the Holocaust: Rescuers and Rebels

Heroes of the Holocaust: Rescuers and Rebels

This lesson is an exploration of the incredible human beings who risked (and sometimes lost) their lives working to rescue Jews from the Holocaust. It is an inspiration from Philip Zimbardo who encourages us to educate children about the psychology of heroism. This powerpoint and collected resources aims to help students understand and be inspired by the incredible acts of bravery these people engaged with. I greatly encourage you to play the video linked to this lesson to students: it moves me to tears every time! Learning Questions include: How did some people act heroically in the Holocaust? How did these heroes’ beliefs affect their actions? Can you evaluate the motivations for people’s actions? EXT: What is the psychology of Heroism? What can we do to help ourselves become more heroic? Great for PHSE, Citizenship, Religious Studies and History. Extension tasks and differentiated activities included.

Lesson 3: Global Citizenship (Money and Inequality)

Lesson 3: Global Citizenship (Money and Inequality)

This extensive resource can easily be stretched out to 2, or even 3 lessons. It is intended to educate, and to some extent agitate, young citizenship students to be aware of the global financial situation they are situated in and how some activists perceive it. It includes case studies (e.g. the Raza Plaza factory collapse in Bangladesh), articles, extension activities, an exhibition of art by Manchester based artist Polyp (who gave his consent for use of his resources), video clips, kinaesthetic group exercises, think pair share. I’ve thrown it all in into this 53 slides. The length of the resource gives you scope to pick and choose, and hopefully should meet the exact requirements of the class you have. There are also extensions about the banking crisis, and possible solutions, for stretch and challenge tasks or KS5. Learning questions (objectives) include: What is money? Am I rich? What is Exploitation? Is the global money system give a fair deal to all who are part of it? Extension: Is financial inequality out of control, and if so how can it be fixed? This extensive resource aims to meet Citizenship, PHSE, UNESCO Sustainable Development goals (4.7) and is created for a religious studies compulsory group (which combines all of the above curricula in my school) to explore the ethics and develop debating skills. It can also be used in geography lessons effectively.

Lesson 2:  Uncomfortable Histories (Global Citizenship)

Lesson 2: Uncomfortable Histories (Global Citizenship)

This lesson aims to give students (particularly British ones) some understanding of the histories and activities of Britain we don’t mention as much as the 2nd World War, the Tudors and the Romans. It is an exploration of the slave trade, the arms trade, native american indians, aborigines and transportation and our involvement in India during the empire. It aims to give students an alternative perspective on Britain without undermining them as individuals, invalidating their experience or burdening them with guilt. Hopefully it leads to some interesting discussion and learning. It certainly does in my classroom! Group activities, based on SOLE (Self Organised Learning Environments), which need some monitoring but the resources created would work well with a variety of exercises including marketplace and others. It aims to meet the Global Citizenship Education aims, specifically 4.7 (which focuses on global citizenship education and education for sustainable development). Any feedback greatly received Learning Questions include: What are the histories we learn about in school? What was Britain’s role in the slave trade, Native American Indians, Aboriginal peoples, the arms trade and India? How do these histories affect our opinions about today’s world? Extension: can you figure out what/whose histories are not included in this lesson? How would you find out about them? Are we responsible for our ancestors’ actions?

It seeks to inspire in all people a new sense of global interdependence and shared responsibility for the well-being of the whole human family, the greater community of life, and future generations. It is a vision of hope and a call to action. The Earth Charter is centrally concerned with the transition to sustainable ways of living and sustainable human development. Ecological integrity is one major theme. However, the Earth Charter recognizes that the goals of ecological protection, the eradication of poverty, equitable economic development, respect for human rights, democracy, and peace are interdependent and indivisible. It provides, therefore, a new, inclusive, integrated ethical framework to guide the transition to a sustainable future. The Earth Charter is a product of a decade-long, worldwide, cross cultural dialogue on common goals and shared values. The Earth Charter project began as a United Nations initiative, but it was carried forward and completed by a global civil society initiative.
