This toolkit has been produced by members of the All = In Network. It has been devised to complement our 3½ minute video “How Are We Teaching Citizenship?” available on You Tube. The video sets out some challenging issues and questions for teachers. Together with these training activities, we hope it will encourage colleagues to reflect on their practice and improve their work promoting human rights, participative democracy and equity in the increasingly diverse communities of Europe.
