About the Book

The Citizenship curriculum aims to help young people to participate more fully in society through the development of a range of relevant skills and knowledge. This book shows how a variety of teaching strategies can be used to teach citizenship skills across a range of curriculum subjects as well as in Citizenship lessons themselves. Topics covered include:

  • developing discussion
  • thinking through debate
  • addressing controversial issues
  • investigating citizenship
  • learning through role play
  • working in groups
  • learning with simulations
  • participation.

A lively and practical book which will be invaluable to student teachers and their trainers, Citizenship co-ordinators in schools and advisors across the country. It combines issues of pedagogy with real classroom experiences and demonstrates just how students learn from different teaching strategies.
