About this resource

Stand Up and Be Counted

A new digital learning platform called Stand Up Be Counted looks at current affairs and aims at enhancing participation in the upcoming elections in May. Rooted in key curriculum objectives for citizenship with cross-curricular links to government, politics and history, these resources have been designed to: Help students understand the concept of democracy, increase students' knowledge of the electoral process, motivate students to take informed and responsible action, and encourage discussion on topical issues such as 'Should the voting age be lowered to 16?'. Teachers can download these flexible resources here which can be used as a standalone lesson or incorporated as part of another topic such as current affairs. Use the website and examples of young people's videos to source topical issues and encourage relevant discussion and promote independent thinking and further research by encouraging your students to visit the digital platform.

"Use a picture. It's worth a thousand words." appeared in a 1911 newspaper article. In education, our expectation of all children is high. Every written and spoken word will count as they grow and experience life. The hook to draw children and young people into learning is key. TeachingHooks.com has been created to provide teachers and other staff in education with engaging visual hooks. TeachingHooks.com provides six week's worth of content for six terms throughout the academic year. The content has been randomly selected to ensure that children (and teachers) are kept on their toes. The images can be used on screen or as printed material to inspire and engage children with their world. ​The images are available for free, and sized at 1600 x 900px or 4:3 ratio. Just click on an image for it to appear in a lightbox!
