This Citizenship Lesson pack has three parts.
Lesson 1 (Children’s Rights) and Lesson 2 (Children Living on the Streets) are 60 minute lessons introducing pupils to these topics. Lesson 3 (What can you do?) is an extension lesson designed to familiarise pupils with global decision-making and different forms of action, using children living on the streets as a case study.
The lesson plans are accompanied by a PowerPoint (downloadable separately).
Together this pack represents a range of lessons for the dynamic teaching of citizenship at KS3. This lesson pack has been designed in close reference to the statutory Citizenship Curriculum. As such, it aims to help equip young people with the knowledge, skills and understanding to play an effective role in public life and engages closely with the key concepts, content and processes of the national guidelines.
It helps pupils to become informed, critical, active citizens who have the confidence to work collaboratively and the conviction to take action.
