The United Nations

The United Nations

After the atrocities of the Second World War (millions of Jews were killed and many others) some countries got together and decided that something like that could not happen again. They formed the United Nations. The United Nations drew up a list of basic Human Rights (1948) that everyone should be entitled to – this is called the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. These worksheets help the students to discuss what they consider essential to living and compare their thoughts to Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. In addition they look in detail at the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and discuss whose responsibility it is to uphold these

Democracy Drop Down Day

Democracy Drop Down Day

Drop Down Day / Off Timetable Day Pack - A set of 6 lessons to cover a Drop Down Day (6 hours) all about democracy, elections and voting. The Drop Down Day was put together for Year 9 originally, but all the resources are editable and well-differentiated so it could be used with any year group KS4 / KS3 with a tweak or so. The overall theme for the series of KS3 Drop Down Days was ‘British Values’, so this is just one in a series of six which ran throughout the year. The day works especially well if you can align it with voting for the student council or prefects. At the end of the sessions, after carefully studying the democratic process, the students could come down to the hall to cast their vote. There is much focus on British Values throughout the lessons as this was planned to ensure thorough coverage of Citizenship and SMSC. All these individual lessons have been rated very highly by Tes users and are tried and tested in my own department. You can find many more inexpensive and free PSHE, Citizenship and RE resources at my shop: <a href=“https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/EC_Resources”><br /> Leave me a review and pick any other resource for free :)</a><br />

Globalization and Global Citizenship, collaborative research project unit bundle

Globalization and Global Citizenship, collaborative research project unit bundle

Students will learn about globalization and then will be working collaboratively to research one problem affecting the world on a global scale, while simultaneously developing their writing proficiency. Upon completion of their research, groups will develop and execute and action project the support solving a global problem on a local level. Discussion questions are used to open each lesson, and students are to be given time to write out their answers before sharing their answers as a class discussion. A writing rubric is included, which is a student friendly version of the WIDA writing rubric, which measures proficiency in writing in English. A sentence starter is included with each discussion question to support students who are struggling writings, have special needs or are English language learners. Research will require access to a source for gaining information. The unit plan was designed with intention to be used with National Geographic’s Global Issues series. If that is not available to you I have also included a hyperlinked document where students can find the information they need on each global issue.

The World News Crossword - February 25th, 2018

The World News Crossword - February 25th, 2018

A simple PDF document that contains a crossword based on last week’s news, and three bonus crosswords (France 1, France 2, and Egypt). The solutions are included. So what happened last week? Russians doping at the Olympics, 6 Brazilian footballers being red-carded, and a protest at the Olympics by South Korean politicians. Suicide bombers in Aden, kidnappers in Nigeria, and bribery in Greece, maybe. 17 people killed when a rubbish pile in Maputo collapsed, a plea to ban palm oil to save forests, an Asian toad invasion in Madagascar, and a whole lot of people volunteer to clean up the beaches and rivers in Bali. And finally, a ceasefire in Syria (perhaps). Crosswords are excellent for prompting discussions about the news events. Why are these events happening? What would you do, if you could? What can we do? Crosswords are good for encouraging research, neat handwriting, and correct spelling.
