The GSresources website is full of useful links, onward references and ready-made lesson plans on a range of social, historical and topical issues relating to each country.
Each country has an extensive range of recommended readings, background reports, playable videos, photographs and online links to local and national newspapers in the global south.
“This is a series of activities that are designed for use with second-level students who are establishing a link with a school in Zambia, Uganda or South Africa or have already established the link but need more classroom support. These activities focus on preparing students for a global learning experience and getting to know their peers in Zambia, as well as working with primary source materials and evaluating their accuracy.”
Currently there are three countries supported and they have a wide range of resources for educators across diverse subject areas:
South Africa: welcome to South Africa | aid | apartheid | citizenship | debt and debt relief | education | environment | fair trade/trade justice | gender | home economics | human rights | poverty | sports | water | newspapers with search options | links for in-depth study | videos
