This project provides schools with an online toolkit to include subject-knowledge resources, planning and curriculum models and schemes of work linked to classroom resources. The project seeks to embed the teaching of Magna Carta and Chief Justice Coke’s reinterpretation of Magna Carta from the 17th Century, within the school curriculum.
By examining the legacy of Magna Carta and looking at its influence on constitutional history both at home and in other parts of the world, the project will help teachers extend their understanding, and their pupils’ understanding, of constitutional history and the history of civil liberties throughout the world.
