Provider: Cumbria Development Education Centre (CDEC)
Cost £: 40 credits per person
Aims of the course:

In this course, we look at practical ways to enrich the English Primary curriculum so that learners develop empathy, respect for diversity and imagination and to recognise their place in local, national and global communities. We will examine how to use a wide range of multi cultural picture, story and poetry books, multi media resources, drama and role play, and non-fiction sources to achieve literacy objectives for speaking and listening, reading, writing and media literacy. We will also consider how a Global Citizenship approach expands learners’ thinking and horizons and develops critical literacy, leading to higher levels of attainment.

Expected outcomes of the course:

? recognise how children’s language skills can be enriched by using real life local, national and global contexts; ? find and access high quality global learning language resources for practical classroom activities; ? explore ways to develop critical thinking skills, particularly in relation to media literacy; ? discover CDEC global resource boxes and artefact collections to inspire language teaching across the curriculum.
