GCSE • Politics, Parliament & Government • Core Curriculum

How can we hold our leaders to account?

This lesson is part 3 of a sequence of 6 lessons addressing the key enquiry: Should the UK be called a democracy?

In this lesson, students will recap knowledge from the previous lesson. They will explore how other countries hold their leaders to account compared to the UK and will put this knowledge into an extended piece of writing using a clear set of criteria. This lesson has been designed for delivery as a single lesson. Timings for each task are given as guidelines.

Students will work towards answering the following questions:
  1. How are leaders held to account in the UK?
  2. How are leaders held to account in other countries?
  3. How effective are the checks and balances in different political systems?
