The documents which make up the Bridges to Africa scheme of work are available for download below. We will be providing a longer, more detailed SOL in early January, but please get in touch if you would like more information.
This scheme of work has been provided should link teachers wish to make this event more meaningful for their pupils. The scheme can be taught as three hour-long global citizenship/English/Geography lessons or as a number of shorter tutorial periods. For citizenship teachers it ticks off quite a number of syllabus skills, and for English teachers, it tries to draw out creative writing and discussion on the subject of empathy.
One of our aims for Bridges to Africa is to help make sure the next generation of young people are fully aware of problems relating to extreme poverty in Africa and elsewhere. Teaching this scheme will help play a role in that effort.
We estimate that the lessons will require about an hour of your time (in total) to read through and prepare for. Please note that the third lesson requires use of the Bridges to Africa video which has been sent directly to participating schools. Copies of the video can be requested by email.
