The African National Congress at 100 the road to freedom

This pack has been developed to mark the centenary of the African National Congress (ANC), Africa's oldest liberation movement, and designed to provide a range of potential uses in schools.

The activities in this pack are mainly appropriate for key stages 2, 3 and 4.  They are designed to be used flexibly in the subject areas suggested or integrated into other appropriate subject areas. Teachers can choose as many or as few activities as they wish. These might include one-off sessions, or longer in-depth units of work. The activities and information provided can easily be adapted according to the classroom situation, for example ages of pupils, number of sessions available and curriculum emphasis.

There is a lesson plan for each lesson providing objectives, outcomes and guidance on using the resources provided.  The lessons are designed to tell the story of apartheid and its leaders, to appeal to young people and to illustrate the success of the ANC. 

The new government and the progress it is making would not have been possible without the resistance movement in South Africa and international support for the abolition of apartheid. It will take a long time to recover from that but young people in a democratic South Africa can be more hopeful now.

In addition there is some useful background information provided. We hope you find these resources helpful and that they assist you to provide positive, fun and robust learning experiences for your pupils.
