Teach the Sustainable Development Goals with the World’s Largest Lesson

From Natalie C., Reference & Digital Resources Librarian

Produced by Project Everyone, an organization dedicated to informing everyone in the world about The Global Goals for Sustainable Development, World’s Largest Lesson is an initiative designed to help teachers introduce their students to these goals.

On the World’s Largest Lesson site, educators can find:

  • Educator training courses on the Goals
  • Lesson plans for students from 4 to 14+
  • Initiatives to help students take action on the Goals outside of the classroom

These resources would also support TDSB’s focus on building student global competencies, specifically the development of global citizenship & character.

Check out some books from the Professional Library that centre around fostering global citizenship in the classroom:

You can also find some useful global citizenship resources on the Virtual Library:

  • Gapminder: Created by Hans Rosling, this site is designed to break down global stereotypes and allows students to compare families & countries around the world
  • CultureGrams: Access stats, videos, photos & more for over 200 countries
  • National Geographic Education: Find fabulous K-12 lesson plans on issues from world hunger to water accessibility to climate change
