Global Citizenship for Young Children


May 2008 | 176 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
This author brings her expertise in the field of Circle Time and Citizenship to introduce a global focus to the learning experience of young children. The six lessons follow Margaret's successful formula, setting the content on opposite pages for the two age groups, four to six years and seven to nine years.

The sessions cover many topics in the themes:

o basic needs

o environmental Issues

o fairness

o exploring various cultures

o democracy

o global Issues.

Use of story, reflection and case study material introduces new experiences to the pupils, promotes tolerance and understanding and enriches the citizenship curriculum. The material could contribute towards accreditation as a rights respecting school.
