Stories

Children as well as adults can learn from and enjoy the stories in The Globe. These real­life stories are at the core of the program. Set aside ample time to read and reflect on the stories.

On the web and in The Globe education magazine, you will find both short and long stories, about Child Rights Heroes, Child Rights Ambassadors, and many other brave children from all over the world. Some are sad and even frightening, some are fun and light. Some are quick reads, while others are longer and/or more difficult. They are always accompanied by images and sometimes also video, in order to gain a full experience.

When you work in a classroom or lead a group session, you can plan what is to be read quietly and what you’re going to read out loud together. The longer stories, for example about the Child Rights Heroes, are often suitable for reading out loud together. You can then make pauses to explain and/or allow time for reflection and discussion.

Short and fun

The Globe also contains short interviews with children, picture stories and sometimes fun texts about games and traditions. Some of these texts can be read in pairs or small groups, where participants read to one another. If you are working with younger children, some texts may be too heavy and difficult. You can then retell the content in your own way, rather than stick to the text word for word.
