If you want to bring politics to life for your students, a school trip abroad is the perfect way to do just that!
A politics school trip will really allow your students to apply context to what they learn in the classroom, by experiencing and learning about the background history and culture of the country whose politics they are studying.
In Berlin your students will have the opportunity to learn more about the long and complex political history of Germany, with a particular focus on National Socialism and Communism.
In Belfast you can take a walking tour covering the history of the Troubles. And at Stormont they can learn more about the Good Friday Agreement and what devolved government means in practice for Northern Ireland. They can take part in a Q&A session with an MLA or even take part in a mock election activity. Or head to Dublin to delve even further into the history of Anglo-Irish relations.
Head to the US to study the history of the Civil Rights Movement in Atlanta and Alabama. Or visit Washington D.C, the seat of power in America and the setting for some of the most famous events in American political history.
