    Citizenship education in the context of safer community journeys is the concept behind a newly published curriculum resource from the NZ Transport Agency.

    Find it here: 

    The resource was written by Pam Hook. It is arranged by learning areas: English, mathematics and science. Students can seek community-based solutions to help road users experience safer journeys.

    Connected educators are encouraged to consider how Pam’s resource could inform their practice.

    Feel free to add your thoughts below about:

    • How this resource could support your practice
    • Using notions of young people as citizens to activate their learning
    • Ways in which road safety, school travel and local streets have or could provide contexts for student learning
    • What works in helping students actively contribute to solutions to issues in their school community.

    We welcome connected educators to share their ideas on how to put citizenship education into practice inside and outside the classroom.

    From October 13, read the latest NZ Transport Agency newsletter for ideas on how teachers can facilitate citizenship education: http://education.nzta.govt.nz/resources/school-community-partnerships/newsletters-education-portal

    Citizenship is also a context for the “future focus” principle of the NZ Curriculum.

    What does citizenship mean for teacher practice? Join this discussion on the VLN. Share your ideas on learning activities, student outcomes, and what teachers can say, do and share with their students to facilitate meaningful learning in line with ideas of citizenship education.
