IGCE: Passage to Africa Lessons
Series of detailed lessons for Passage to Africa.

Persuasive writing and context lessons:

Students will act as 'Save the Children' and research into the issues affecting the lives of those in Somalia due to the war (research pack provided). They will then write a persuasive speech to the Prime Minister using the research that they have learnt. This can be taught over a series of lessons.

Activities led to really interesting and insightful discussions, and students developed a more insightful understanding of the issues that affect their world :o)

Nice idea to extend learning outside the classroom:
- letters could be sent to the MP
-speaking and listening activities
-assembly presentations
(A VARIATION OF THIS LESSON FOCUSING ON THE SYRIAN REFUGEE CRISIS CAN BE FOUND ON MY TES SHOP FOR FREE AND IS A TES RECOMMENDED LESSON)
