Lesson plan resources

Notes to teachers

We have revised lesson plans for KS3 and KS4 in the light of the new Citizenship curriculum that came into force in September 2014. 

In designing the new plans we have drawn on guidance produced by the Association of Citizenship Teachers including a recent workshop on assessment. 

Each sets out the main learning objective and the success criteria for demonstrating the learning to be achieved.

Suggestions for learning activities are offered in the introduction and main body of the lesson. There are also graded activities suitable for challenge and extension, and for support activities.

Worksheets are available for some lesson plans.

All lesson plans have links to resources on the site that bear directly on the content of the lessson. There are also links to external sites.

We have changed the format from a formal lesson plan to a set of modules that teachers may find easier to use and build into their own plans.

All the plans assume use of the interactive whiteboard. In some cases there is provision for small groups to work independently at a personal computer in class or in an ICT suite.

We have introduced a new resource called Talking points.  These are short notes on current issues that teachers may find useful to stimulate debate.
