What needs to change in our community and who can make a difference? Lesson 1 of 6

Key stage 3 (ages 11-14) • Active Citizenship • Lesson and support materials

What needs to change in our community and who can make a difference?

This lesson is part 1 of a sequence of 6 lessons addressing the key enquiry: Who has the power to bring about change in our community?

To underpin their learning throughout this scheme of work, students explore the meaning of power and the local community. They identify and prioritise key needs in their local community, and gain knowledge about the roles and responsibilities of individuals and organisations with the power to bring about change. As part of this, they find out what a changemaker is and consider what might inspire them to become a changemaker.

Students will work towards answering the following questions:
  1. What is power?
  2. What are the needs of our local community?
  3. Who can bring about change in a local community?
  4. How can we be inspired to become changemakers?
