Growing up around the World

Growing up around the World

Service Pack: Available with USO

Subject: Citizenship Geography

Eleven lives, eleven stories, eleven dreams, eleven countries... one life cut short! What’s it like growing up around the world?

Over more than two decades, charity tve followed the lives of 11 children in 10 different countries to make a series of groundbreaking films.

A precursor to the BBC's "Child of our Time" series, this resource provides a unique insight into what it means to grow up in different parts of the world; the challenges, hopes and dreams of the 11 children and the impact of the world around them.

Growing up around the World aims to help UK children understand the realities of childhood in different contexts. Strikingly, many of the struggles and challenges the children encounter are universal, from the UK to South Africa to India.

Designed for use in Citizenship, PSHE or Geography lessons, the videos introduce Key Stage 2, 3 and 4 pupils to human rights, building an understanding of the issues facing people around the world, specifically regarding education.

These are real stories, including poverty, unemployment and death, so this resource aims to provide schools with a safe space in which to tactfully address these complicated issues.

Particularly useful in multi-cultural London classrooms, the resources come with a comprehensive teacher pack with full lesson plans, starter activities, sample worksheets, a dictionary of key terms and tips for expanding on the material provided in the resource.

Access to Learning Resources both in and away from school site is freely available with a TRUSTnet Core Service subscription.
