Introducing the Parliament topic

Ruth Tarrant

12th October 2016

The news that the Labour Party has set out 170 Brexit-related questions to the government in order to scrutinise the Brexit process is a great starting point for teaching the Parliament topic. I suggest printing the article, or sections of it, in the middle of a sheet of A3 paper, and asking students to identify and explain the following terms:

  • Parliament
  • Government
  • Opposition
  • Scrutiny
  • Shadow Minister
  • Minister
  • Elective Dictatorship
  • Parliamentary Debate
  • Transparency
  • Motion
  • Backbencher
