How can I get involved in politics? Lesson 2 of 6

Key stage 4 (ages 14-16) • Politics, Parliament & Government • Core Curriculum

This lesson is part 2 of a sequence of 6 lessons addressing the key enquiry: How can we become the future political leaders?

In the second lesson in this scheme of work, students investigate different ways they can get involved in politics. The lesson introduces them to devolution and the topical debate of voting at 16 and 17. Students will debate and vote on this issue in the classroom.

Two questions frame the lesson:

  • What are the different ways I can become involved in politics?
  • Should the voting age be reduced to 16 in the UK?
