Creating your own political party lesson

(0)
I have used this lesson with Year 8 & year 9 students. I use the easy read formats of all the political parties so they understand what a manifesto is and should look like. I have attached one as an example. You can usually find these easily when you google for them. The project booklets are completed by each student and allows for self, peer & teacher assessment. This would need changing for your schools own assessment system but you get the idea. This lesson usually takes about 3-4 lessons and I allow students access to computer rooms so they can research their policies and create things for their campaign. They then have to present their ideas to a panel (of teachers etc who vote) to see which party has been the most persuasive and won the class election. the best groups from across the year group then meet the local MP to discuss their ideas. Students LOVE this project and get a lot out of it. I hope you enjoy it and I welcome your feedback.

This lesson is a PowerPoint with worksheets etc. on the PowerPoint. I have taught this lesson for a few years now to Year 7 and it has always been received well. I would suggest that you say your door is open to them if they have found any of the lesson upsetting etc. However, my students have always voted at the end for this lesson to be taught again the following year.

I have used this lesson as part of the new AQA spec for Theme 3 and with my year 9 students as part of their Politics & extremism unit. I hope you find it useful. I welcome feedback too :)

I have created 3 booklets that I have used with my students. One looks at various sources based questions from the 2 papers. One looks specifically at section B of the A342 exam and the other contains past 12 mark questions for the A342 exam. My students like having these booklets to help them practice the areas they felt weakest in. I hope you find them useful. I welcome feedback. :)

I use this at least once a term with my classes when I take their books in as it's quick & easy to use showing students what they need to do to improve etc. I have got some of my more able classes to use it as a peer assessment of books too.

I use this once a term to give detailed feedback quickly to students. Do not try to use this every time you mark (as if you are like me and have about 300 students you teach it's too much workload wise). You could get students to use this as part of peer assessment based upon your feedback too. I hope you find it helpful.

NEW AQA GCSE CITIZENSHIP Theme 3 end of unit test & resit paper

(1)
I created the end of unit paper using past gcse questions from OCR & AQA so that section A tests students knowledge with low mark questions and section B tests their ability to apply their knowledge to higher mark questions this gave students 2 GCSE grades (based upon the last year grade boundaries and allowed us to do a SWOT analysis of them in this unit). The resit is a combination of both knowledge & skills. I hope you find this useful. Feedback is welcomed :)
