We're pleased to be the curriculum partner with the OAK national academy for citizenship.
ACT teachers have been designing and developing lessons for years 7-11. The online classroom and activities club was set up to help teachers and parents support their pupils and children during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Sanum Khan, Head of Citizenship, led work on The ACT Building Resilience Project at Chalfonts Community College in Buckinghamshire.
The project focused on critical thinking, problem solving and enquiry skills and taking informed and responsible actions through eight Citizenship lessons with about sixty Year 9 students. Pupils explored different political ideologies and the controversial issues of freedom fighting, extremism and popular uprising using national and international case studies.
As the crisis in Syria continues, much the recent argument between those nations who are concerned about the fighting has been about the moral and legal use of certain weapons. These are complex matters yet of great interest to students. Go to the British Red Cross pages for some really good ideas about discussing these matters.
