Resources Original



GLADE is an Aladdin’s cave of global and international resources – all available on loan. These resources can be invaluable for teaching:

  • Global citizenship
  • The global dimension throughout the school curriculum
  • International themes
  • Community cohesion
  • Spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects of the curriculum
  • Global and development issues.

Our resource library includes books, posters, leaflets, artefacts and photo-packs. There are activity notes to help, which make it possible to use the Collections with little or no knowledge of the country they focus on. Use them not only as a global resource but to develop your learners’ skills of reflection, analysis, observation, presentation, discussion, sharing, in an imaginative and fun way which also broadens their knowledge and understanding of the world and their place in it.
