Education for Global Citizenship

This new flagship publication from Oxfam outlines the why, what, and how of Education for Global Citizenship. Aimed at teachers in all subjects, and across all age groups, it provides case studies outlining best practice in the classroom, examples of appropriate teaching approaches, and resources for further reading.
"Education for Global Citizenship: A Guide for Schools" is a free booklet for teachers that introduces the key elements of Oxfam's curriculum for Global Citizenship (knowledge, skills, and values), as well as providing case studies outlining best practice in the classroom, examples of appropriate teaching approaches, and resources for further reading.
Developed in partnership with teachers and other educationalists, this curriculum builds on existing good practice and recommends the knowledge, skills, values and attitudes to which young people are entitled to enable them to develop as Global Citizens.
It outlines the importance of Education for Global Citizenship (E4GC) for pupils growing up in the 21st century, and clearly sets out how teachers can incorporate E4GC in their teaching and across their school. It’s a highly practical booklet, providing teachers with:
- activities to explore what E4GC means with colleagues;
- case studies of schools that have integrated E4GC across their curriculum and ethos, and the benefits this has brought to their pupils;
- a number of E4GC activities that can be adapted for use in many curriculum areas, with a wide range of age groups and ability levels;
- a resources list, including where to find more information about E4GC.
