Where do I go from here?
This lesson is designed to introduce students to Global Citizenship through the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda of Sustainable Development Goals and by leveraging the Atlantic Council for International Cooperation (ACIC) membership in the Atlantic Provinces. There are three stations that present Global Citizenship from a number of different angles.
Each of the PDFs below is three pages, the last of which is a “sources” page. Only the first and second pages need to be printed (one double-sided handout) for the students in each group. You can download a zip file that includes all of the station handouts and the worksheet HERE.
- Divide your class into 3 groups (or 6 groups if it’s a large class)
- Begin the scrollable presentation (act4globalchange.ca/citizenship)
- Distribute the printed handouts accordingly.
- This class is planned for 60 or 75 minutes. It’s been tested successfully for each time period.
- Collect the worksheet for grading or assign optional homework/projects based on the resource links at the bottom of this page.

STATION 3 IS A PHOTO ANALYSIS CALLED “LENS ON THE ISSUE”. YOU CAN USE ALL FOUR OPTIONS OR CHOOSE JUST ONE. STUDENTS EXAMINE THE PHOTO FIRST, THEN DISCUSS THE ISSUE HIGHLIGHTED ON THE BACK.

We’ve found it works well to print only the number of copies needed for each (single) station. Collect and reuse these as the groups switch.
THE STUDENT WORKSHEET IS CALLED “THE GLOBAL CITIZEN’S SUITCASE” AND IS A PLACE FOR STUDENTS TO WRITE NOTES AND ANSWER QUESTIONS ABOUT EACH OF THE STATIONS. IT CAN BE USED AS AN ASSESSMENT PIECE.
