TEACHING GLOBAL VALUES
The new ‘It’s our world”’ section in Happy Campers Second Edition supports the Education for Sustainable Development and Citizenship framework providing the perfect opportunity for children to learn about cultural diversity, health and wellbeing, while they learn to interact and work together.
The video introduces the broad theme of global values education, what it is, why it’s important and how children can learn values from you, the teacher, through the way you model appropriate behaviour and give positive feedback. Angela Llanas, one of the authors of Happy Campers, shares her top tips for teaching values to young children in English language classes.
