This thought provocative resource aims to help students assess whether prison sentences work.

At the end of the document there is an extension question designed to help consolidate the lesson. This is a fully editable document which can be customised if necessary to suit your students. The aims of this lesson / activity are: Theme: Crime and Punishment Know: How are people supported in prison? Understand: What are the advantages and disadvantages or sending people to prison? Evaluate: Does prison protect society from crime? WILF - What am I Looking For? Identify and describe - How are people treated in prison?

It also examines the role of ALEC in crafting legislative policy and how member corporations directly benefit from increased mass incarcerations.

9 Civics and Government Escape Rooms BUNDLE: 9 No Prep Activities!

Looking for NO PREP, engaging activities to cover a variety of Civics and Government topics? Want a way to make the Articles of Confederation or the Declaration of Independence a blast for the class? This resource includes 9 Civics and Government Escape Rooms: Citizenship and Naturalization Preamble Escape Room Bill of Rights Escape Room Founding Fathers Escape Room Branches of Government Escape Room Declaration of Independence Escape Room Articles of Confederation Escape Room Supreme Court Civil Rights Movement This 9 pack bundle of Civics and Government related Escape Rooms will take students on 9 separate secret missions around the classroom! Each escape room has students decode interesting facts about the Preamble, the Declaration, Bill of Rights, Founding Fathers, Branches of Government and more!. This is the perfect resource to introduce the civics topic or to review the topics. Each Escape Room has students walking around the classroom breaking codes. Students are given 9 different secret code names and sent on 9 separate secret missions. The codes include ciphers, Morse code, cryptograms and a final 4 digit code based on the decoders/clues. Each clue and code is different. The codes require students to think differently to decipher or decode them. Some codes are easier than others. Some codes require critical thinking to determine what a letter/symbol stands for. Each code will reveal facts related to the topic. The use of secret code will keep your students engaged while competing to find the final code. Students can report the final code to you. If you wanted to, you could purchase a 4 digit lock that you program, but it is not necessary at all! No props needed!! Each room is a NO PREP, PRINT & GO Activity! Students are sent on 9 separate “secret missions” and given a different back story to ignite their active learning skills. They are given a code name which makes them feel as if they are part of the secret mission. Students practice hands-on, practical problem solving skills all while learning about various Civics topics. Your students will be inspired to think outside the box! The best age range for this resource is 8+. Please look at the preview to determine if this resource works for your age group. Younger students may need some help with some of the more difficult codes. You can use the pre-labeled clues or you can challenge older kids to choose/find the decoder that works for each of the clues. A set of labeled and non-labeled decoders are included. In addition to learning or reinforcing the subject matter, my escape rooms encourage teamwork and critical thinking. As a “timed” challenge, students will be engaged from beginning to end. An answer key and teacher directions are provided. Time needed: 30-60 minutes per room

Types of Government Wordsearch Sheet Starter Activity Keywords Cover Politics Elections

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet of keywords on the theme of ‘Types of Government’. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

PSHE: New PSHE 2018-19 Part 1

PSHE: New PSHE 2018-19 Part 1

10 hours of new PSHE lessons on some of the most pertinent and pressing issues facing students in 2018/19. These topics have been identified by the PSHE Association as essentials for the coming year and so this bundle has been planned following their recommendations. This is part one of a two part pack. PART TWO All 10 lesson packs are complete with at least one hour-long powerpoint, accompanying differentiated worksheets, clip links with questions, plenaries, clear LOs, starters and engaging, varied main task activities.All are well differentiated to three levels throughout to enable clear evidence of progress for all students. These lessons have been selected to be in this bundle as they all focus on relatively new issues or ones which need further awareness amongst young people in the diverse world of technology, fake news and potentially tough futures which lie ahead. These resources have been highly-rated individually by TES users, follow the same consistent format and are easy to follow. There is zero extra work required, although each lesson is still completely editable too. I use all of these myself as a Head of PSHE and Citizenship and I really hope you find them excellent value. I’ve put literally months of time into this to make these lessons top quality for my own school team. I have ‘One Year of PSHE’ Packs for Years 7, 8, 9 and KS4. You can check them out at the shop link below. Please leave me a review and I’ll send you any other resource of your choice for free. Many more inexpensive or free resources at my shop: EC_Resources
