Join pupils around the world for the second Commonwealth Class debate.
How it works
In class, watch the film on the Commonwealth Class website about ‘school journeys‘. Talk about this in class and gather some opinions, examples and comments to share with pupils around the world.
Go back to the page at any time between 1100-1300 BST on Thursday, 27th of June to share and discuss your ideas by emailing them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Commonwealth Class will publish pupils’ opinions on the site, allowing schools to respond and converse in real time.
The aim is to include as many contributions as possible.
About Commonwealth Class
Commonwealth Class is a special initiative that provides teaching resources, online debates and interactive activities for schools to mark the run-up to the 2014 Commonwealth Games. It celebrates the values of the Commonwealth and connects schools and young people as they learn about how to be active, responsible global citizens as part of the Commonwealth family.
The Commonwealth Class education pack is an exciting resource designed to teach young people about Commonwealth values such as rights and responsibilities, protection of the environment, respect for others and what people need to lead healthy lives free from poverty.
Produced by the British Council, the resource pack contains cross-curricular activities, short films and discussion guides with learning outcomes that link to key skills, curriculum subjects and Commonwealth values. Activities include what qualities you need to be a successful Commonwealth athlete, and an exploration of the route of the Queen’s Baton Relay which will visit all 71 countries and territories taking part in the 2014 games.
