Summary

Religion has achieved ever greater prominence in debates about citizenship at every level of cultural, economic, social and political life. Citizenship through Secondary Religious Education highlights some of the key issues surrounding citizenship for the R.E. teacher.

Topics selected include those of historical and immediate relevance to teaching citizenship through religious education. There are chapters covering general critical planning issues and those concentrating on specific themes such as:

  • The open society and its enemies
  • planning for citizenship through religious education
  • genocide
  • asylum
  • freedom of religion and belief
  • sustainable development
  • the rights of indigenous peoples.

Practical in its style, the guidance presented in this book will be invaluable to teachers and student teachers of religious education and specialists in citizenship. Those who have been allocated responsibility for teaching Citizenship or Religious Education, or are looking to teach them as second subjects, will also find this book a useful resource.
