Coronavirus teaching resources

Try our free coronavirus resources

Coronavirus stories are shared at the click of a button and debates continue about the world's response.

Since March 2020, we have been busy creating free coronavirus news resources to help young people make sense of the unfolding pandemic. They were designed to be suitable for learners studying from home and for delivery in the classroom. We cover a range of topics - from well-being to gender, to identifying fake news.

Our resources encourage learners to:

  • Assess the truth of what they read about the coronavirus
  • Evaluate the arguments on either side of the debates
  • Produce informed and reasoned opinions based on evidence

Help your learners develop their communication and critical-thinking skills, whilst boosting their knowledge of the issue that still dominates the news cycle.

Each week, we publish news resources on breaking stories on our dedicated Topical Talk site. Designed by teachers, these activities help students see beyond the headlines and discover the details which are needed to form accurate opinions. These can be used both in school and at home.
