Core Lesson Otpor – Case Study

Core Lesson Otpor – Case Study

This lesson is one of two alternative core lessons (the other is Bristol Bus Boycott) to be completed after Lesson 1 and 2. It introduces an important idea of the “Pillars of Support”, which will be referred to in subsequent case study lessons. It uses a mystery activity as a way of engaging the learners with the case study. Groups are given different parts of the OTPOR story and have to piece together what happened by asking the other groups questions. For it to work it is important that that no one knows the whole story at the start of the lesson.

“Pupils were engaged. They discussed democracy in school, wider community, local council and nationally, identifying pillars of support along the way. This was a time leading to parliamentary elections. So there was plenty to discuss in context.”
