Between January and May 2021 we piloted a project to produce 'plain-English' resources requested by teachers involved in teaching global justice at the post-primary level. Feedback from teachers was that they needed more jargon-free, accessible current-affairs content for the classroom - and we listened!
Luckily thsi project has been funded for a second year, so between December 2021 and May 2022 we will be producing 9 more 'Plain English Economics' resources; about the new tax rules, vulture funds, climate finance and more.
You can find them in the 'resource finder' on our website by searching 'Plain-English Economics' under 'type'.
See below for our Plain-English Economics content to date. These are all ready to be used in the classroom - by you!
