The Cultural Literacy Learning Programme (CLLP) is a series of 10 lessons for three different age groups. Each lesson is based on a wordless film and is designed to spark discussion about tolerance, empathy, and inclusion.
The CLLP is a teaching resource developed as part of the DIALLS project by a multi-national team of researchers and teachers. It was piloted by teachers in over 250 schools in seven countries over the course of the 2019-2020 school year, and further refined in a smaller community of practice of teachers from four countries.
The programme has two main aims:
- Cultural learning: support children and young people to discuss topics related to living together, being socially responsible and exploring cultural heritages and identities
- Dialogue and argumentation: enhance students’ ability to talk and reason together, teaching them the importance of listening carefully to other views, building on these and sometimes challenging or disagreeing with them
What it includes:
- A series of 10 lessons for each age group (KS1, KS2, KS3).
- Each lesson includes one short, wordless film as an exciting and engaging stimulus for discussions, and a lesson prompt card. As the films are wordless, they can be used in any language of instruction!
