Overview

Citizenship is a wide-ranging subject that can be taught in its own right, or through other curriculum subjects and activities. This book is intended for students training to teach Citizenship as a first or second subject, and will also be immensely helpful to experienced teachers who have opted to take responsibility for this exciting subject.

With key objectives and tasks for each chapter, this book will help teachers to improve their understanding of Citizenship education and to help their pupils understand their roles as citizens. It may be read in conjunction with the companion core textbook, Learning to Teach in the Secondary School, 3rd edition.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'The latest book in a major series aimed at PGCE students and practising teachers...it is a comprehensive and illuminating resource on both citizenship and citizenship education. Part one provides an excellent and thoughtful introduction to local, national and international citizenship. Part two is more mixed, with chapters on the complexities of citizenship education, pupils' learning, the role of language and special educational needs. Part three provides the nuts and bolts of the book, with sound chapters on developing schemes of work, assessment and resources. - Professor David Hicks, TES
