Teacher’s Guide to Bridging Global Citizenship and World Heritage

Source: UNESCO

Description: This guidebook provides case studies of lessons designed to teach cultural diversity through tangible heritage such as human settlements and religious buildings located in the World Heritage Site of Penang and Melaka in Malaysia. The guidebook also provides lesson plans that help students appreciate cultural resources by studying intangible heritage such as cultural foods and cultural clothing. The educational materials will be useful in organizing a class which can foster Global Citizenship among learners and will encourage them to actively participate in action to preserve World Heritage in their local community. One of the important features of this guidebook is to suggest learning objectives, topics and activities that are age related, and which help in the development of a desirable human character which EIU/GCED pursues. Lessons are structured on UNESCO’s core conceptual dimensions of GCED; cognitive, socio-emotional and behavioral.
