Welcome to Global Words
The fifteen units of work in Global Words have been produced by World Vision Australia and the Primary English Teaching Association Australia (PETAA) to integrate the teaching and learning of English and Geography with global citizenship education.
At the centre of both global citizenship education and the study of English is the aim of supporting students to become ethical, thoughtful and informed citizens, predisposed to take action for change. These units, and the supporting resources of Global Words, aim to build the essential knowledge, skills and values young people need to participate actively, critically and creatively as global citizens.

Please note that the units of work now reference Version 8.1 of the Australian Curriculum, including links to the new Humanities and Social Science (Geography) curriculum Years F-6/7. Keep in touch and communicate with Global Words on Facebook.
