Check out our exciting lesson to explore a global issue

The origin of this work was something of a lighthearted challenge - to devise a Citizenship education activity about pirates to be used on September 19th International Talk Like a Pirate Day. The serious aspects however are those that ask about piracy today and explore deep ethical and values questions about the law, human rights and globalisation. View the resource here.

ACT Citizenship CPD - Module 7 Political literacy

Becoming politically literate is a key aim of citizenship education.

The purpose of this module is to help teachers become confident with teaching this essential aspect of the subject.
