World Cup and Englishness...



Thanks to my colleague Paula Owens for telling me about this World Cup charity record.

What is striking about this is the emphasis on the multicultural nature of the country, something that was picked up on Radio 4 earlier today when Michael Caine was interviewed.
The occasion was the opening of a new exhibition in the Museum of London, which featured Michael as an 'iconic Londoner' and he described the importance of everyone living in the city seeing themselves as "a Londoner", rather than choosing a label which identified them as being somehow separate from the community...

Could you see yourself using this video in the classroom, and if so how ?

What additional materials might be needed to turn this into a curriculum resource...

Don't forget the GA's other WORLD CUP RESOURCES
