Each card has three bullet points which suggest possible aspects to be covered. The students themselves should be able to think of many more and incorporate them into the discussion; they can also find out further relevant information so improving their research skills.
Rights and Responsibilities
Cards which focus on all aspects of citizenship: acceptable behaviour as well as anti-social behaviours; plus consideration of the law.
Suggestions for use
Students work in small groups; they can be given the same topic or different ones. Either they or the teacher can choose the topic. The task is to consider the topic using the bullet points and prepare and present a short talk to the rest of the class.
The task could also be extended so that students conduct research into each area at home and then produce a more detailed report backed by facts and figures rather than simply presenting their own thoughts and opinions.
