Rights and personal freedoms

This lesson focuses on the topic of personal freedoms and rights.

In the lesson, learners will take part in a series of short discussions relating to the rights of organisations to know and record personal data, and an individual's right to privacy. In the final activity, they will discuss who they support in situations where those rights may have been breached.

The activities in this lesson plan use discussion cards from the UK Parliament's website and expand on the teaching suggestions that accompany the cards:



Personal information and privacy


  • To allow learners to develop oral fluency through a series of discussion activities
  • To allow learners to develop an awareness of the sharing of personal information and its implications
