China in a Box
This box is designed to help teachers integrate China in the curriculum or in enrichment activities. Most of the box is digital, so teachers can deliver classes on their own, but you’re welcome to get in touch if you would like a visit.
Designed to be used in Politics, Language and Geography lessons.
China in a box looks at the big challenges facing the world today - from global warming to poverty and world peace – if we want to do something about these challenges we have to consider China as a key part of the picture. China is now the world's largest economy; the world’s fastest growing large economy, and one of Britain's biggest trading partners. School students are likely to work in or with China in their future careers. China in a box was developed to help teachers, and to support student engagement with China by integrating China in the curriculum or in enrichment activities. Most of the box is digital, so teachers can deliver classes on their own, but you’re welcome to get in touch if you would like to visit us here on campus or want us to come to you.
The box has several pick and mix components, including:
1. A set of three classes designed to fit the Geography GCSE Global Cities element, including a comparison of Shanghai and Liverpool.
2. A 10 minute film which explores how China impacts British students’ lives, which can form the starting point for debate, creative activities, or other interactive exercises.
3. Material for a roleplay of the big Paris Environment talks that took place in 2015. This can be used in class, or on a larger scale between classes or schools.
4. We provide materials for schools that want to try out Chinese arts like calligraphy and paper cutting.
