We've added quite a few teaching resources to the Global Dimension resource database this month. Follow the links to find out more.
There are three new free DVDs available from the aid charity World Vision. Never Give Up is a resource for upper secondary and post-16 which focuses on the impact of HIV/AIDS. Another resource for this age group, Stitched Up, looks at the issue of child labour, while Water World is a game looking at water use, for primary and lower secondary children.
New ActionAid resources include the free PowerDown Climate Change Toolkits, one for primary schools and one for secondary schools, as well as their new Chembakolli Story resource, celebrating 20 years since the Adavasi people successfully marched to reclaim their land.
Some resources were added to link in with Armistice Day on 11 November which this year commemorated 90 years since the end of World War I. The People of the Great War resource from the Imperial War Museum looks closely at the real lives of people from many countries who were affected by that conflict. And from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission: Remember Me focuses very much on the act of remembrance whilst Let Us All Die Like Brothers commemorates the tragic sinking of the troopship Mendi.
Looking ahead to Human Rights Day on 10 December, and this year's 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we've added a Human Rights Teaching Pack from the United Nations Association and the Respect! pack from Save the Children.
Finally, whilst modern languages would seem to be an ideal subject area in which to explore the global dimension, there don't seem to be many language-related 'global' resources. So it's great that SCIAF have produced Citoyens du Monde - la Vie en RDC, a resource which enables students to find out about life in the Democratic Republic of Congo through the medium of French.
