How can I become a rights investigator? Lesson 4 of 6

Key stage 3 (ages 11-14) • Active Citizenship • Lesson and support materials

How can I become a rights investigator?

This lesson is part 4 of a sequence of 6 lessons addressing the key enquiry: What role can I play in making our school a fairer place?

Students begin work on their own investigation into rights within school. This is a real opportunity for student voice – for students to research an issue and present their findings to a changemaker in school. The particular focus of this lesson is research. Students are introduced to primary and secondary research, consider different ways of gathering information in relation to a particular right in school, and come up with an action plan for how to put this into practice.

Students will work towards answering the following questions:
  1. What are the steps in an investigation?
  2. Why do we carry out research?
  3. What is the difference between primary and secondary research?
  4. How can we find out what’s happening in school?
