Description of the DatasetThe resources consist of a comprehensive handbook designed for the English language classroom, accompanied by a teaching manual citing the text passages from the book "The Invention of Nature" (2015) by Andrea Wulf used in the project. The handbook focuses on the theme of global citizenship through exploring the life and person of Alexander von Humboldt. It comprises 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. 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.
