The Economist Educational Foundation
The Burnet News Club is a network of state school news clubs which develops young people’s critical thinking and literacy skills through open discussions about current affairs. Teachers receive all they need to run a news club. Sessions take place weekly at school, and students also join UK-wide discussions with their peers and topic experts online.
ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP TO THE BURNET NEWS CLUB INCLUDES:
A fully-resourced, six-session scheme of work every half term. Includes multimedia news content and activities to develop students’ knowledge, critical thinking, communication skills and confidence. See an example.
Access to our unique online learning platform. Students publish their work, discuss the topics with peers in other schools, have questions answered by experts, win stars for their contributions and enter competitions.
Teacher training to develop dialogic teaching strategies.
The chance to come to our awards ceremony at Buckingham Palace at the end of the year.
Annual membership costs £1000. This includes all resources, teacher training and support, plus 30 student Hub accounts. If you are interested in a place in the Burnet News Club, now is a great time to start the conversation about signing up for September 2019.
