Initially students are to complete the questionnaire on their own political views. This can be read or taught through the link to a video. Some of the questions have concern opinions of immigration, welfare, benefits, race and abortion.
Students are then shown a teacher led presentation on the views, tactics and methods of the KKK in the USA. As they make their notes the students are to consider the Q.:
'How much freedom of speech should be permitted in a democracy?'
When completed the teacher is to survey the opinions of the class based upon the initial questionnaire. Any question that gains the majority of the class will become a law. Any question whose outcome is actually affected by the number of students who chose not to hold an opinion can be used to stress the importance in a democracy to to have opinions.
The plenary twist lies in the fact that the initial 11 questions are based upon expressed views of the KKK and have had the USA replaced with the UK. To agree with the question therefore, is to support the views potentially of the KKK. How many laws that the KKK approve of would be passed by your class
