A series of 6 lesson plans on the subject of global citizenship including worksheets and activities.
Our citizenship teaching resources not only educate the class about the importance of taking an active role in society, they also encourage students to investigate issues important to them.
In this lesson, students will be considering the concept of identity at different levels – national, regional and local.
This should be an initial introduction to democracy and justice under Article 21 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The first of the six lesson plans tackles the question of citizenship and how citizens and citizenship can be defined. With the basics established, lessons plans 2 – 6 are more specific, with lesson two examining the issues of identity and diversity, including how different identities can exist at different levels. Lesson plan three encourages students to discover aspects of conflict around the world and justify the rights and responsibilities of individuals. Lesson four looks at democracy and justice and different voting systems in the democratic world while lesson five is designed to help students develop a better understanding of sustainability and global warming. The final lesson in the series recaps on all previous learning outcomes, culminating in students appreciating how they can make a contribution to society and the world and make changes at local, national and international levels.
