Learning to Teach Citizenship in the Secondary School : A Companion to School Experience
'A comprehensive and illuminating resource on both citizenship and citizenship education'
- David Hicks, Times Educational Supplement
What is the role of citizenship? How can it be taught effectively?
The fully updated third edition of Learning to Teach Citizenship in the Secondary School is an essential resource for students training to teach citizenship, as well as for experienced teachers under whose remit citizenship is soon to fall.
Written in a clear and practical way, yet underpinned by a sound theoretical background, it examines citizenship as a wide-ranging subject and an essential part of a number of different subjects.
With a new emphasis on citizenship education across the curriculum, the new edition covers key themes such as:
• historical origins and contemporary contexts
• developing subject knowledge and skills of enquiry
• effective lesson plans, schemes of work, and assessment
• citizenship beyond the classroom: community based work and learning outdoors
• citizenship across the curriculum: history, English, drama and media, geography, mathematics, science and RE
• research in citizenship
With key objectives and tasks for each chapter, this book will help the reader improve their understanding of citizenship education and in turn, help their pupils understand their roles as citizens in today’s society.
