General Election 2017

Theresa May has called a snap General Election on 8th June 2017. After the success of Action for ESOL’s London mayoral materials we have made a new pack of lessons to help ESOL teachers to bring discussion about the GE into the classroom and give ESOL students a voice in making demands on their future members of parliament.

Based on feedback from the last set of lessons we have tried to make this pack more flexible. We do suggest you try the introductory lesson first but we hope you can dip in and adapt materials for your classes. We have provided the resources as word documents to make this easier.

Please distribute these materials to all ESOL teachers you know in the UK and get in touch with any feedback or ideas that come out of your lessons.
