Active Learning in Social Subjects & Religious, Moral and Philosophical Studies

RME1Students in Social Subjects and Religious, Moral and Philosophical Studies (RMPS) have enjoyed active learning with the help of the UK Parliaments loan box. This resource contains everything required to recreate a parliamentary debate in our school. All S1 students have led and held debates on whether or not the vote should be given to 16 &17 year olds and our senior RMPS students have debated the issue of capital punishment for the UK. The Parliament’s loan boxes have helped to encouraged lively classroom debate, introduce the concept of law making and enabled the students to understand the democratic process though active learning.
