Can your class use the past to advise present governments? Your students will establish what the problems are with drinking today, look to the ugly issue of gin drinking in the 1700s using Hogarth’s classic print, and compare to see if the issues then are the same as now.
They will go on to evaluate how successful the different ‘Gin Acts’ were before reporting back to the political masters.Do they think increasing the price of alcohol will have the desired effect?
This enquiry can be used as part of the tea scheme of work or as a stand alone lesson.
