We're pleased to announce the arrival of Citizenship teachers to Oak National Academy, the online classroom and activities club set up to help teachers and parents support their pupils and children during home learning. Oak provides a plan of video lessons and resources. Every lesson is free to use. Citizenship is timetabled for Lesson 1 on Thursday each week.
Teachers gathered in London on 5 July 2019 for a day of CPD planned by the ACT Council of teachers. The day was full of practical sessions and guest speakers to help teachers consider and plan their curriculum provision for citizenship, smsc and personal development, and consider the new Ofsted inspection framework. Here are the presentations and accompanying resources.
This short briefing provided by the Association for Citizenship Teaching provides senior leaders in schools with key information about Citizenship, its status in the curriculum and the new Ofsted inspection framework for schools. It sets out the requirements upon all schools to make provision for Citizenship, and how the subject relates to other important national policies.
The resources in this Deliberative Classroom pack focus on the topic of Democracy, Protest and Change. The pack begins with a briefing paper to help teachers think about the depth of conceptual knowledge students need as they learn about democracy and its key characteristics and the different ways citizens can influence change.
The 'Having a Say' Citizenship resources have been developed by ACT with support from the Historical Association, the Cabinet Office and the Government Equalities Office. They form part of a wider set of history and Citizenship resources to celebrate 100 years of votes for women.
Workshops and seminars explored teaching themes including democracy, critical media literacy, fake news, British Values, student voice, political literacy, voting and youthquake. Five organisations also provided taster sessions and teaching tips.
