15 days left to draw the world’s largest lesson plan

published 16 April 2015 updated 17 April 2015

The World’s Largest Lesson Plan is an international project of Education International and its global partners which invites teachers to popularise the Sustainable Development Goals of the coming decade.

In September 2015, the United Nations is announcing the Sustainable Development Goals, a set of global goals that aim to make our planet fair, healthy and sustainable by 2030. “The World’s Largest Lesson” brings together UNICEF, with the support of TES Global and Education International (EI).

Through a global online competition, teachers around the world are being invited to develop unique lesson plans or ideas about the principles and themes of the goals. Winning lesson ideas will be celebrated throughout the world and published as a global set of learning resources on The World’s Largest Lesson website, which includes a wonderful video featuring footage from EI’s “A Day in the Life” documentary, to enable teachers to craft a relevant lesson on The Goals for the children that they teach.

This multilingual project has great potential to help teachers educate future generations on the world’s most pressing issues.

Once uploaded, all lesson plans can be viewed, shared and rated by peers on the TES lesson plan platform, used by millions of educators around the world. The top rated plan from each of the five global regions will be crowned a winner. The winning classroom, teacher, or school will be celebrated

The winning teachers will be invited, along with their school, to take part in a filmed lesson event with a visiting celebrity. They also have the chance to be celebrated at EI’s 7th World Congress in Ottawa this July.

Lesson plan submissions can be uploaded until the 1st of May.
