The Staff Room
Welcome to the staff room. This is a place for teachers to find information as well as share ideas and comments about the Youth Amplified resources. Be sure to check out the lesson plans and the teacher guide. They are packed full of activities relating to each key capacity, offer guidance on assessment and suggestions on how best to use this website in your classroom.
Teachers’ Guide to the Youth Amplified Resources
The guide, which can be accessed below, is designed to support teachers and youth workers.
It should be used in conjunction with the resources on this website which include animations on each of six key civic capacities and the personal stories of the young people which illustrate them. All can accessed on the right hand side of this page.
All the research and practice on which it is based have been derived from working with young people who were encouraged to define and articulate all of the themes it features. The content on the website is in their words and the activities set out in the guidebook were all tested with groups of 11 to 18 year-olds; only the ones they found useful are included here.
On the CD Rom, you’ll find presentations and classroom-based activities for each of the six civic capacities on which Youth Amplified focuses. The Booklet provides guidance on how to plan lessons using these resources.
