Support for curriculum planning

There are also a range of resources that support teachers to incorporate global education within the curriculum and to consider what might be appropriate at different ages and stages of development.

Often global education with younger children focuses more on values education and softer approaches to global education, whereas global education with older pupils might be more analytical and critical. Some examples of these guides are included in the See Also section.

Have a look at one of these guides and see if there is anything useful to support your own teaching. In particular, look at the activities for the age ranges you teach and see what they suggest. To what extent do these documents incorporate those elements of global education we spoke about last week (e.g. knowledge, skills, values and action)?
