KS3/4 Citizenship - Engaging with Democracy

Description

In this programme a teacher explores the idea of campaigning to see how engaged students might be if presented with political ideas that engage with their lives.

Young people are increasingly failing to vote and, it appears, are disenchanted with governments, but does that mean that they are uncaring or unpoliticised citizens?

Ullswater College's John Sander teaches a Year 10 lesson looking at campaigns around voting at the age of 16, participating in the UK Youth Parliament scheme, whale conservation and sustainable tourism in the Lake District.

The programme also looks at how Ullswater College attempts to reflect democratic principles within the institution itself.
