Teaching Democracy - Lets get elected!
'Let's get elected' is a set of teaching activities and resources for students to help develop knowledge and understanding of local democracy and elections using the context of electing the Mayor of London. Pupils explore the process of electoral campaigning to be a city mayor by working in teams to put together an election campaign.
The lesson was designed for use with year 7 and can be adapted for other age groups and election contexts.
This teaching resource was orginally developed by teachers at Blackfen Girls School and has been updated by ACT.
