Teaching Global

Teaching global citizenship requires teaching and learning with a global perspective. Teacher scaffolding is essential. Learning sequences should be planned carefully and teacher language must be chosen to avoid stereotypes, tokenism and exoticism. So what is a good resource for teaching global perspectives? The Global Dimension has a good guide here


This highlights the need for resources which encourage critical thinking, linking inequalities within a wider network of causes and consequences.


Here is a list of some of my favourite online resources for teaching with global perspectives. I will be updating this list as I discover more:
