Created with support from expert journalists at The Economist, this 6-hour Special Edition helps 10 to 16-year-olds set their own expectations for politicians by evaluating examples of politicians' behaviour in the news.
In Lessons 1 to 4, students build their knowledge to make informed opinions about politicians' standards; and the final two lessons support learners to plan, create and share Standpoints – their final say – presented in either audio, video or written format.
