LESSON PLAN

1. British Political Structure:

The British political system is a confusing mesh of modern and traditional elements. In this lesson you will learn all about how British political institutions are structured, where power lies, and how we are governed.

2. Voting and Elections:

When you vote, how is it counted? Does one vote mean the same everywhere? What is the difference between a general election and a local election? Learn everything there is to know about voting and elections in Britain. Remember, to vote is to have your voice heard!

3. Democracy and Hansard:

Our politicians run the country. That is a fact. However, our MPs are in place because WE voted them in. So, learn all about how we, the people, can keep up to date with how our country is governed and the laws that are created.

4. Political Ideology and Political Parties:

Right-wing vs Left-wing. Authoritarian vs Libertarian. Conservative vs Labour. In politics there are always opposing sides – that is how everyone’s opinions are heard. Learn all about the differences between ideologies and where the main political parties in Britain stand.

5. Digital & Media Literacy:

With the explosion of digital technology and the birth of social media, mainstream media has transformed. Anyone can now share and create articles for the whole world to read- for free. This comes with its own problems. In this lesson learn to identify and manage fake news, deep fakes, misinformation, bias and disinformation campaigns.

6. Human Rights Act (HRA):

The Human Rights Act brings the ECHR into British Law, meaning that judicial decisions on human rights cases can be reached within the domestic legal system. However, successive governments have started to discuss repealing the HRA and replacing it with a British Bill of Rights. In this lesson learn about the two sides of the argument and how our law on human rights might change.

7. Campaigning and Activism:

Campaigning and activism is how you attempt to make a sustained change. This can be a huge political change or a small local change. In this lesson, we are going to run through the different ways you can campaign, lobby and create change!

8. Public speaking and Presenting

The word public speaking sends a shiver of dread through a lot of people. However, in this lesson, we want to change that. Learn clear and easy techniques that will help you in your presentation and public speaking skills. Master the skill of confidence and allow your voice to be heard!
