Thanks to the GA for alerting us to WorldWise Week (WWW), formerly known as Geography Awareness Week. This provides teaching resources with activities for students at all key stages and abilities linked to the current theme. The resources are for use either during the designated WWW (during the last week of June) or at any other time.
To get involved, download the current year’s Worldwise Week electronic resources from this page. The GA would like to see examples of students’ work showing their engagement with the current theme. These can be submitted to the GA (to firstname.lastname@example.org) specifying which key stages the submitted work relates to. Entries received by the end of December each year from the KS3/4 category can be used in support of demonstrating your school’s engagement with Worldwise, with a view to the possibility of your school progressing to take part in a future Worldwise Challenge weekend.
The 2017 theme is Inclusive Geographies. This pack of resources provide activities for students around the theme Inclusive Geographies, which is particularly pertinent in the light of recent national and global political shifts and the possibility that, around the world, the ability to understand, value and respect others could be slipping through our fingers if we are not careful. Both human and physical geography can help young people understand differences – in places, people, and events – and in doing so enable them to look outward, beyond themselves, in order to be ‘inclusive’.
