How can I take part in the democratic process? The role of the Select Committee
This lesson is part 6 of a sequence of 6 lessons addressing the key enquiry: Should the UK be called a democracy?
This lesson introduces students to the work of select committees and the role they play in our democratic system. By taking part in a mock select committee, students learn that this is an important way in which they can become part of the democratic process and shape policy and law. This lesson has been designed for delivery as a double lesson. Timings for each task are given as guidelines.
Students will work towards answering the following questions:
- What are select committees and how are they run?
- How can we measure the success of select committees?
- How can I take part in the democratic process through select committees?
- Should the UK be called a democracy?
