Lesson plan

Oak National Academy weekly ACT Citizenship Lessons for Years 7-10

We're pleased to be the curriculum partner with the OAK national academy for citizenship.  

ACT teachers have been designing and developing lessons for years 7-11. The online classroom and activities club was set up to help teachers and parents support their pupils and children during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Media Literacy resources

These resources have been developed by ACT to support the teaching of media literacy through citizenship.

1: Teaching Media Literacy - Covid-19

Put together by experienced secondary citizenship teachers, this first learning activity is designed for use with pupils in key stages 3 and 4. Pupils are introduced to basic media literacy concepts and terms and encouraged to develop their knowledge, source analysis and critical thinking in relation to the different types of information they encounter.

Citizenship teaching resources for distance learning

ACT teachers have been sharing their ideas to support pupils who may be studying Citizenship at home during the outbreak of COVID-19.

All the resources here are accessible to those with appropriate IT and internet access.

Teachers will want to review the resources first to ensure they are appropriate for pupils.

Our huge thanks to everyone who has contributed to this collection of resources.

Election teaching resources

Teacher members of ACT have been developing lessons and activities to support teaching about the election, voting and democracy. 

Our thanks to Helen Blachford, Zoe, Baker and Ryan Mason for sharing their ideas.

Parallel election teaching resource

Elections provide a key moment for teaching about the political system, voting and democracy. This resource on Parallel elections has been developed to help teachers plan and undertake a parallel election with their pupils.

Deliberative Classroom: Democracy, Protest and Change

The resources in this Deliberative Classroom pack focus on the topic of Democracy, Protest and Change. The pack begins with a briefing paper to help teachers think about the depth of conceptual knowledge students need as they learn about democracy and its key characteristics and the different ways citizens can influence change.

Having a Say - Suffrage Citizenship Lessons


The 'Having a Say' Citizenship resources have been developed by ACT with support from the Historical Association, the Cabinet Office and the Government Equalities Office. They form part of a wider set of history and Citizenship resources to celebrate 100 years of votes for women.

This article is the third in a series from the English-Speaking Union, supporting teachers to develop the use of speech and debate in the Citizenship classroom.
