GCSE Citizenship Political Parties + Voting

GCSE Citizenship 9-1: A 1 hour lesson on FPTP, PR and the philosophies of the main UK political parties. As required by the AQA spec (but also suitable content for other specs), this lesson covers:

1.The major political parties contesting UK general elections; key philosophical differences between the political parties operating in UK general elections.
2.The nature of the ‘First Past the Post’ system based on parliamentary constituencies; the frequency of Westminster elections. Other voting systems used in UK elections, including proportional systems and the advantages and disadvantages of each.

Created for Citizenship GCSE - Politics and Participation - perfect for revision too. Includes:
1 hour PP, worksheets, exam practice question, clips, well differentiated and easily adapted. Made for AQA Citizenship 9-1 but suitable material for any of the Citizenship GCSE courses or could be used for non-GCSE British Values lessons.

This lesson has been planned for Citizenship AQA 9-1 : Politics and Participation, specifically spec point 3.4.3 Where does political power reside: with the citizen, parliament or government?

These resources have been designed to be engaging, detailed and easy to follow. All our resources are editable (so easy to adapt for your classes).
