ACT National Conference: innovative teaching ideas, expertise, resources and more...
Innovative Citizenship Teaching
The National Citizenship Education Conference for Teachers and Education Professionals
So, it's that time of year again - the annual national conference for citizenship educators and professionals is on Tuesday 28 June.
We have a great line-up of organisations, exam boards and publishers ready to meet you, answer your questions and provide teaching resources and information on school programmes.
The programme, designed by ACT Council and staff, gives you the opportunity to:
Discover how localising the curriculum can enrich and enhance learning
Learn about pushing the boundaries at GCSE through using innovative approaches
Use active citizenship ideas & historical stimulus materials to explore issues like terrorism & extremism
Consider how a three-dimensional view of subject knowledge can provide coherence to your teaching over time. Derive a framework to inform planning for progression and assessment.
Use images & portraiture to get into values & identity, with guidance from the National Portrait Gallery
Make use of enhanced networking opportunities, facilitated by ACT Council
Attend micro-seminars by guest contributors, including the Crick Centre
Have questions about Prevent and its implications for teachers and students?
Hear from HMI Geraint Evans, National Lead for Extremism, in conversation with David Barrs, Head teacher at Anglo European School.
Annual General Meeting
This meeting is for all members of ACT and is central to our democratic and accountable structure.
