Hate teaching Electoral Systems?
I used to as well- no matter how I taught them- students could never remember the differences and strengths and weaknesses.
This resource was created after 10 years of frustration! It is designed to let students explore the different systems for themselves- engaging with the ballot forms and trying to work out how they work and the strengths and weaknesses for themselves. When I used this for the first time last year the students remembered the systems so much better than ever before and were able to evaluate them really well.
Accompanying powerpoint and worksheets to go with the interactive ballot activity and card sort.
This resource covers 5-6 hours of teaching on electoral systems including a detailed evaluation of FPTP and a comparison to other electoral systems as a legacy of the Jenkins commission.
It covers most of the Elections topic just nothing on Referendums.
All videos except one are embedded for your convenience- the other was too large!
If you have any questions about the resource- email me but I have tried to make the powerpoint guidance as clear as possible.
It's good to leave some feedback.
Something went wrong, please try again later.
Superb resources for electoral systems, easy to use and well written. Really great, thank you!
