Hi Aisling,

Welcome to the course and thanks for sharing your thoughts on the article by Ehigie. Empowering children with the social and moral responsibility to fight for these core issues is the ‘ideal’ goal of an effective development education programme. Many of the suggestions you have put forward for incorporating development education in your teaching would carry weight within the SPHE curriculum. Getting guest speakers and those from community/national/global organisations involved in providing perspectives is encouraged within this curriculum. I hope that the content of the upcoming modules will provide you with other ideas of incorporating the central themes of development education across the curriculum.
