Democracy Week 2-8 July 2018 support for schools

National Democracy Week (2-8 July 2018) is a week long celebration of democracy including events, talks and activities in communities across the country.  The week is also being used to focus on the anniversary of the extention of voting rights to women. Schools can use the opportunity to focus on democracy in their Citizenship and history teaching. ACT is delighted to be working with the Historical Association to develop some new resources on Women's Suffrage which will be launched later in the year. 

To support schools we have put together some new teaching ideas and suggestions for teaching democracy and included some resources developed and shared by ACT teacher members.

The following teaching ideas have be shared by ACT teacher members:

This year ACT's teaching conference on 7 July has been timed to cooincide with National Democracy Week and focuses on Young People and the future of Democracy.

As part of the conference we are celebrating democracy as an EqualiTeas partner and are delighted that Baroness Garden of Frognal, Deputy Speaker of the House of Lords is speaking about her thoughts about equality and the role of women in parliament,  and the importance of Citizenship education in schools.
