Planning a global education lesson

A short video by Nicole Blum introducing a global education lesson planning activity.
So far this week, we’ve looked at a number of things that you might do to incorporate Global Education in your practise. But we recognise that trying to implement all of these would be a daunting task for any teacher, especially if you’re new to Global Education. So in this activity, we will provide you with a tool for planning Global Education in practice and give you a chance to try it out yourself. Of course, it’s not possible within the scope of this course to look at large-scale initiatives, such as whole-school approaches. So we’ll start with something relatively simple, a single lesson within a single curriculum area. We hope that this will serve as a useful starting point on your Global Education journey.

We’ve already looked at several things you might do to incorporate global education as part of your teaching.

Throughout this activity we will provide you with tools to plan integration of the principles and this video will introduce those tools.
