Student in the Thomas Paine project

Key Stage 3-4 Citizenship

Thomas Paine is a key figure in the history of the Working Class Movement, and the library has worked with 3 schools to produce 3 films with accompanying lesson plans for use in the citizenship/ history classroom.

The films encourage students to question their role in society, and what they can do to change the community around them.
