Win a book token for your school - the Citizenship Foundation invites schools to trial new resource
The Citizenship Foundation has recently completed a new resource about Europe, and is looking for schools to trial one or more units during the autumn 2009 term.
Europe and Me is aimed at mid-to-upper secondary students of average ability. The resource takes a number of themes including work, environment, crime, discrimination and equality, and uses a semi-animated power point story to demonstrate the benefits of European cross-border cooperation. The resource was commissioned by a group of major European trusts and foundations called Network of European Foundations (NEF). Some of these trusts formed a sub-committee called Initiative for Learning Democracy in Europe (ILDE).
The Citizenship Foundation is looking for schools to undertake a trial of one or two units and complete an evaluation form. All completed forms will go into a prize draw for £50 of book tokens.
The resource can be integrated into individual curriculum subjects, used in stand-alone citizenship sessions or as an inter-disciplinary tool to help teachers deliver a European element across their school or college curriculam. The resource is available in several different European languages which could make it adaptable for Foreign Language lessons as well.
The resource can be downloaded for free at the Network of European Foundations' website.
If you are a teacher interested in trialling one or more units please email Ruxandra Ratiu, the International Project Officer on firstname.lastname@example.org by October 1st 2009.
