VE Day Citizenship Teaching Resources

On 8th May, were it not for fighting the outbreak of Covid - 19, many people would be marking the 75th Anniversary of VE day. School assemblies would be held and classrooms would remind students of what VE Day was and why it is important to remember. Instead, we find teachers setting work from home.  

Media Literacy resources

These resources have been developed by ACT to support the teaching of media literacy through citizenship.

1: Teaching Media Literacy - Covid-19

Put together by experienced secondary citizenship teachers, this first learning activity is designed for use with pupils in key stages 3 and 4. Pupils are introduced to basic media literacy concepts and terms and encouraged to develop their knowledge, source analysis and critical thinking in relation to the different types of information they encounter.

Supporting pupils and teachers after the Manchester attack

Following the devastating terrorist attack in Manchester, many schools will be dealing with questions and concerns from pupils about what happened and why. It is important for teachers to provide curriculum space to talk about questions and concerns, and challenge misconceptions but not be rushed into a reactive response, particularly while information is still emerging.
