Description of the DatasetThe resource consists of an English language course for secondary level learners of English as a foreign language. The course centers around the topic of global citizenship, encompassing a well-structured curriculum comprising language activities and multimedia resources, which can be seamlessly integrated into the Moodle learning management system. The course focuses on the theme of global citizenship through exploring the life and person of Alexander von Humboldt. It includes four modules that engage students in activities to define the concept of global citizenship and explore Humboldt's life and contributions, present his various roles and critically assess his impact on global citizenship. Module 1 focuses on defining the concept of a global citizen where students compare their personal understanding, discuss similarities and differences, and formulate a common definition of global citizenship. Module 2 involves watching videos to extract information about Humboldt's character, expeditions and scientific contributions. Module 3 explores Humboldt's various roles, with students reading excerpts from a biography and presenting him as naturalist, activist, advisor, author or scientist. In Module 4, students discuss Humboldt's significance for contemporary global citizenship and the relevance of Humboldt's life for today's generation. The main course is accompanied with separate teaching notes, a document designed to support teachers by providing detailed overview of the course content with in-depth explanations, essential teaching points and suggested approaches for interactive activities. This dataset offers educators a valuable resource for promoting English language skills, scientific knowledge, critical thinking abilities and cultural awareness among high school students, fostering their understanding of global citizenship and its relevance in today's world.
