Big Ben and All That
Get to grips with the inner workings of Westminster and find out what MPs "actually" do in the course of a week with the Big Ben and All That! CD-Rom.
Developed by the Hansard Society and the Association for Citizenship Teaching (ACT), this free resource gives teachers the inside scoop on what goes on in Westminster through interviews with MPs, Lords, and teachers as well as archived footage from Parliament. It's perfect for bolstering knowledge of the UK Parliament so teachers can approach the teaching of political literacy with real confidence.
The resource aims to:
- Provide accessible and interesting material that will enhance teachers' understanding of the parliamentary system by bringing together factual information in a creative way;
- Enhance the quality of teaching students receive within the political literacy strand of the Citizenship curriculum, through better understanding of the parliamentary system;
- Contribute to a positive learning experience for students and hence greater engagement with, and willingness to participate in, formal politics;
- Share good practice that emerges from the use of the CD Rom by teachers.
