As ACT approaches our 20th anniversary year, we would like to showcase and share the best lessons from teachers that encompass the knowledge, skills and understanding pupils develop through Citizenship education.
We invite teachers to submit a lesson that has inspired their pupils to engage actively with real issues and built their love for the subject.
This website provides all the information you need to develop a great programme of Post -16 citizenship education.
The community interest group Active Citizens FE is run by experts who provide advice, information and resources to use in a wide range of post-16 settings. You can also join the network to recieve updates and further information.
For this academic year Giving Nation have teamed up with Give More to provide FREE resources to help students to identify what they can offer during the current economic climate.
Give More is a response to the fact that communities need us right now. It is an independent, growing movement of thousands of people from across the UK publicly committing to give more time, money or energy to the causes and charities they care about over the next 12 months, and encouraging others to do the same.
Junior urgent actions are monthly appeals which have been specially designed for young people aged 7-11 working with the help of an adult (usually a parent or teacher). The actions are part of Amnesty's worldwide letter-writing campaign on behalf of victims of human rights violations.
The RSPCA has produced a large number of curriculum-linked resources. So far they have got over 60 lesson ideas that include teacher and pupil fact sheets, pupil activity sheets and engaging photos and pictures. Topics range from Animals and the law to Biodiversity. The topics are aimed at different age groups and cover curriculum material for Science and Citizenship Key stage 1 - 4. Many of these resources are also available in Welsh. All these resources can be found at www.rspca.org.uk/education.
Citizenship Teacher has a host of resources for teaching Citizenship. With lesson plans, video clips, games, whiteboard materials and everything else you could need! Citizenship Teacher has been created in consultation with ACT.
