    This clear and user-friendly text provides practical guidance on how to incorporate citizenship into the curriculum. It offers a wealth of teaching aids including:

    * tried-and-tested photocopiable materials
    * case studies
    * suggested teaching strategies
    * comprehensive reference and resource section.

    Nick Clough and Cathie Holden are fully experienced in the field having both taught in primary and middle schools and both now specialise in providing citizenship education courses for trainee teachers and practising teachers.

    This up-to-date book will help engage those teaching (and studying) the new requirement of Education for Citizenship at Key Stages 2 and 3, and along with lively examples of pupils' work and discussions of the changes to the QCA guidelines regarding citizenship, they provide a comprehensive and complete resource.

    It is also of immense value to curriculum coordinators and to those wishing to know more about the thinking behind education for citizenship.

    'This is an invaluable resource and a welcome addition to developing a strong and growing pedagogical base for citizenship education. Indeed, it should be on every school's shelf and be regularly picked up and thumbed for ideas and inspiration by teachers and curriculum co-ordinators, as well as by those involved in teacher education.' - David Kerr, Teaching Citizenship

    'Clough and Holden's new book is particularly helpful for teachers unclear about the boundaries between PSHE and Citizenship and what the new subject "Citizenship" might entail ... The text is jargon-free, teacher-friendly and well laid out, and the activities come from a variety of subject areas, providing a dynamic model of permeation of citizenship. All the resources are provided for simulation games, quizzes, debates ... It is very good value, operating at several levels. I recommend it highly.' - Hilary Claire, Cambridge Journal of Education
