Year 10 LLW Revision


Democracy means power comes from the people. Everyone can vote and have their
say.

An example in our school is the school council. The school council gives pupils a
chance to have a say.

In a dictatorship there is no freedom of speech. One person makes all the decisions
with no input from the population.

To vote for someone means you are electing that person.

Why should young people vote?
   To have a say
   To make a difference
   To take part in issues that affect you

Local Councils:
How do local council raise money to pay for services?

Local councils are funded by a combination of grants from central government,
domestic rates and business rates. They also receive income from investments,
council rents, sales and charges for services.
Services provided by the local council include:
    Waste and recycling services,
    Leisure and community services,
    Building control
    Local economic
    Cultural development
    Local parks

Key words:

Democracy – freedom of choice.
Belfast City Council – a local council in Northern Ireland

School Council
Issues that could be discussed at school council level include:
     Options for canteen food
     Non uniform days as a fund raiser
     School tuck shop
     Break time/lunch time activities




                                                                                      8
A school council gives students a voice.

Advantages of a school council
    Pupils have a say.
    Get to vote for class elective
Disadvantages of a School Council
    Certain issues are not discussed – impact of school council is small
    Decisions made do not take into consideration both sides
    Class representative was not selected for the year.

MLA’s
The minister for education is in charge of schools.
The minister for health deals with hospitals.
The minister for cultural, arts and leisure deals with festivals
The minister for agricultural deals with farming
The minister for regional development deals with the countryside

Features of a Democratic society include:
   1. The rule of law- people have a right to a fair trial through the courts
   2. Freedom of speech- all types of media can criticise the government without
       fear of being arrested.

     SOME TIPS ON ORGANISING YOUR REVISION TO SUIT YOUR
                      LEARNING STYLE

In school you had the opportunity to determine which learning style suits you best.
Below is a list of practical ways to revise – choose the ones which best suit you.

VISUAL LEARNING – Seeing Learners

           1.  Mind Maps
           2.  Pictures
           3.  Diagrams
           4.  Charts/Graphs
           5.  Colour – marker/highlighters
           6.  Symbols
           7.  Doodle while thinking something through
           8.  Take notes while someone is talking (teacher)
           9.  Sit quietly and visualise what you have just seen, read or heard. Make
               a ‘mental movie’ in your mind.
           10. Learn in groups & with others

AUDITORY LEARNING – Hearing Learners

   1. In the same way as you have a mind’s eye where you can ‘see’ things in your
      head you also have a mind’s ear.
      a). Repeat subjects to be learned in your head using differed accents. Make it
      sound as funny or ridiculous as you like.
      b). Repeat subjects to be learned in your head using your teacher’s voice for
      that subject. It is a clear link for your brain.
   2. When you are on your own speak out loud so that your ears are hearing your
      voice.
   3. The use of background music can either assist or irritate some auditory
      learners. Generally classical music is the best. It has no lyrics and the tempo
      maintains and supports concentration.
   4. Audio record your essay answers and completed questions and play them back
      to yourself regularly.
   5. Mind Maps
   6. Learn in groups – especially when you can discuss topics

KINESTHETIC LEARNING – Touch Learners

   1. If you like to fiddle while you learn and study then you must fiddle or you
      will not learn well;
      a). Tangles
      b). Stress Balls
      c). Even blue-tac!
   2. Walk around while you learn!!
   3. Use Mind Maps
   4. Notes on Index Cards that can be shuffled and re-arranged
   5. Post-it notes
   6. Always write it out to show you know


                                                                                      11
