These materials were created by English teachers in Scotland. The first activity introduces the need to hear multiple stories of the world and our place in it. There then follows three units with a focus on climate change, refugees and how we engage with the ‘other’. They include short introductory activities as well as a series of lessons exploring the topics in more detail. A range of stimuli is included – poetry, biography, images and film clips. All activities are mapped to Curriculum for Excellence benchmarks and reference the relevant SDG.
