Just Connections, Just Trade: A Teaching Resource about Africa 

A collaborative project between Marino Institute of Education and Proudly Made in Africa (PMIA), with funding support from Irish Aid.

Just Connections, Just Trade: A Teaching Resource about Africa has been written to support 5th and 6th class primary school teachers in teaching about the wider world and in developing global citizenship in relation to curricular areas such as SESE and SPHE. It examines topics such as interdependence and globalisation, trade relationships, and consumer choices, in child-friendly language, and through a range of active and participative methodologies designed to enable children to understand and engage with complex issues. It examines global trade issues while promoting a view of African countries as equal trade and economic partners.

The pack was written by: Tom Larkin, Liz Morris, Conall O'Caoimh, Penelope Muzenenhamo, Barbara Wilson, and Barbara O'Toole. The pack can be downloaded by clicking on the image below or clicking on the related file at the bottom of the page.
