What is a private members bill? Part 2

In this lesson, students are introduced to the skills needed for debate before taking part in a model second reading debate in the House of Lords. They will review contributions made at the second reading of Lord Knight’s Education (Environment and Sustainable Citizenship) Bill before considering their position and deciding if they would vote for or against movement of the Bill.

This lesson is part of our 20 Lessons for 20 Years collection celebrating the fantastic work that is carried out every day in our Citizenship community of teachers.  Our teachers have shared their favourite lessons that encompass the knowledge, skills and understanding pupils develop through Citizenship education.
