Webinar overview

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. Global Words resources support teachers to implement the Australian Curriculum: English and the Global Perspectives framework. The webinar provides:

  • an overview, unpacking interactive and downloadable aspects, with suggestions of classroom work relevant to teachers across the three education levels
  • further support in understanding the Global Perspectives framework that underpins Global Words
  • guidance in using the Australian Curriculum
  • reflection on the four domains of Sustainability, Refugees and migration, Indigenous peoples and Australia and its engagement with Asia, focussing on relevance to the Australian Curriculum: English (and NSW English K-8 syllabuses), while also addressing aspects of geography and HSIE/SOSE.
