The aim of the Activate lesson plans is to support students to choose actions that are achievable, appropriate and have an impact upon their issue. These lessons contain many examples of active citizenship for inspiration, and they guide students to delegate tasks and campaign for awareness and support. Students can then use their research findings to plan and carry out an effective action.
If you do not have enough time to complete all four lessons, we recommend that you start with investigation of ‘What activism looks like’ (Lesson 1), and that the subsequent lesson be spent planning and allocating tasks within student groups.
