Key stage 3 (ages 11-14) • Active Citizenship • Lesson and support materials
What are grassroots developments and what impact can they have on a community?
This lesson is part 4 of a sequence of 6 lessons addressing the key enquiry: Who has the power to bring about change in our community?
Building on their work in the last three lessons, students explore what grassroots developments are and examine two case studies that show how successful they can be in changing local communities. Students find out how grassroots developments are funded and consider how to raise awareness through writing a newspaper article.
Students will work towards answering the following questions:
- What is a grassroots development?
- How are grassroots developments different from other organisations?
- How are grassroots developments funded?
- How can grassroots developments change local communities?
