Resources for citizenship lessons

Try our free resources for citizenship!

Each week, we publish news resources that many schools embed within their citizenship lessons. Designed by teachers, these sessions help students think critically in an age of fake news and tackle the big stories in depth.

Critical thinking in an age of fake news

Our resources help students develop their ability to critically analyse and evaluate news sources. Activities help them spot misinformation and come to their own judgments based on sound evidence.

Hit citizenship national curriculum objectives

These resources cover various aspects of the citizenship national curriculum for KS2 and KS3, including democracy, the press and rule of law. Explore big concepts and ideas through current news stories such as the coronavirus pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement.

Activities cover fundamental skills: researching, discussing and debating topical questions. Use them to encourage students to explain their views on issues that affect themselves and society.
