Thank you for visiting the Global Literacy webspace!

Global Literacy is a project for teachers and children who want to learn more about global issues, to tackle poverty, and to work together to take action to make the world a fairer place.  There are schools from the UK, Poland, Czech Republic and Ghana working on this project and sharing ideas, and this website has been set up to help us keep in contact and share our learning and ideas.

About this site

This site is always being updated, so come back regularly to see what’s new.  There is a wide range of Classroom Materials, including photos, videos and presentations from schools in Europe and Ghana, and an exciting Challenge & Enquiry Pack which contains lots of ideas, activities and lesson plans for teaching development issues in your classroom.  The classroom activities are all engaging and active, and have a strong focus on delivering literacy outcomes through a real and purposeful context.

Most importantly, we are working WITH teachers to develop this project, so please tell us what you think!  And if you have any ideas or classroom materials that you think could improve our website, or that you would like to share, let us know!

Why not use our Classroom Materials!
