Citizen's rights and Brexit - a series of lesson plans to help inform your students

This pack of 5 lessons explores the rights of UK citizens living in an EU country, as well as the rights of EU citizens living in the UK.  The overall purpose is to help young people gain better knowledge and understanding of their rights as EU citizens and to:

  • enable them to engage with an issue which will be foremost in the news for at least the next twelve months, and possibly longer;
  • understand the choices facing the UK government, other EU governments and the EU institutions, on this issue;
  • think critically about the issue of citizens’ rights in the context of Brexit, coming to their own opinion about the best way forward, and gaining a better understanding of the impact upon themselves and their communities.

What you get:

  • Mapping Document
  • Lesson 1 – Brexit, the UK and the EU: What are the costs and benefits of the UK’s membership of the EU in the context of Brexit?
  • Lesson 2 – Freedom of movement after Brexit: What will be the impact on British Society if freedom of movement between the EU and the UK is restricted after Britain leaves the EU?
  • Lesson 3 – Workers’ rights and Brexit: What will be the impact on British Society if EU workers’ rights change after Britain leaves the EU?
  • Lesson 4 – Healthcare, social security and Brexit: What will the impact be on British society if access to healthcare and social security changes post Brexit?
  • Lesson 5 – Higher education and Brexit: What will the impact of Brexit be on higher education in the UK?

We would recommend that, where possible, the resource pack is delivered in its entirety.  However, where time is limited, each lesson can be delivered as a standalone unit.
