For nearly three years now, Brexit and the EU has dominated the news in Europe and beyond. One persistent debate asks whether a second referendum is the best way forward. This workshop explores the arguments on either side of the debate and asks students to form their own opinions.

The resources will develop understanding and analysis of this important and topical issue. Students are asked to evaluate the arguments and give their opinion through a range of activities.

– Familiarises students with important keywords
– Covers the timeline of Brexit up to February 2019
– Unpicks the arguments for and against a second referendum
– Structures a group discussion

Everything is provided, from session guides to resource activities, to run a 75 minute workshop for students aged 11 to 15.
