TeachUNICEF Global Citizenship Briefs are sets of instructional resources on topics of global concern. Centered around a student magazine that explores current issues through informational texts, questions that promote critical thinking, photography from the field, and data analysis exercises involving maps, charts, and graphs, each brief highlights a significant present-day emergency or humanitarian need.
Global Citizenship Briefs are accompanied by a lesson plan and several instructional activities that can be implemented in as little as fifteen minutes, including a take action piece that provides students with ways to demonstrate global citizenship by taking humanitarian action for children around the world. All materials are aligned to National Content and Common Core State Standards for maximum integration into your core curriculum.
