Priory School, Portsmouth
Teacher: Helen Blachford

This sequence of lessons was developed for a year 8 class (12-13 year olds). Students had studied Nelson Mandela and the Apartheid era in history lessons, but they had never considered his work in Citizenship lessons.  The STTP case study provided a starting point for a contemporary investigation and citizenship action. The lessons helped students deepen their understanding of the nature of human rights and of the struggle to achieve them. Explore the sequence of learning and resources used
