Get Global! presents a clear rationale for integrating a global dimension in the primary curriculum and uses subject and thematic contexts as doorways through which children can explore global links. The book is for all primary teachers who wish to move teaching and learning about global issues beyond a simple ‘us and them’ approach to one that is genuinely inclusive of diverse cultures and perspectives, through exploring shared values and understandings.
After an introduction and planning section, separate chapters give suggested activities for bringing a global dimension to: English, Maths, Science, Geography, History, RE, Drama, Art and Music, and PE. There is also a chapter on the Foundation Stage. This is followed by three cross curricular chapters covering: Gypsy and Traveller culture; Puppetry; Climate Change and Renewable Energy.
The practical activities described are tried and tested. And they are firmly rooted in curriculum contexts and in classrooms, from Foundation Stage to the top of Key Stage 2.
