WWGS Subject Specific Guides:

Teachers may explore their subjects with a global justice lens while meeting the requirements as laid out in the specifications. The guides enable teachers to challenge their students to look at our world, and our role in making it a more just, equitable and sustainable. Parts or all of these resources may be used to assists teachers plan their lessons.

Practical School Examples:
Here are some examples from Global Passport Awardees, which show what they did in their school on this category:
St Brendan’s Community School, Offaly
“Our school policy encourages teachers to share resources which particularly benefits the progress and cross curricular approach to DE in our school. The sharing of such resources particularly takes place through English, History, CSPE and Geography. It is hoped that with the continued development of Google Doc in our school the sharing of resources will continue to improve between and across departments.” Diplomatic Global Passport Award Winner 2015

‘There are a huge amount of resources being used throughout our classes:
Worlds Largest Lesson, Financial Justice Ireland’s How the World Works, Concern: Gender Equality, Global Action Plan Resources, SEAI school resources, Amnesty International resources, World Wise Global Schools subject Guides, Fairtrade Resources
Our teachers are the biggest resource. Constantly bringing new ideas to our students and challenging how they think and feel. Facilitating reflection in students. Often we use the previous work of students as a resource to begin or introduce a new topic. This has the advantage of being from our school and students recognise and identify with the work’.
