Summary

Praise for previous editions…

'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?

Learning to Teach Citizenship in the Secondary School is an essential resource for students training to teach citizenship in the secondary school as well as teachers of citizenship looking for fresh ideas and guidance. Written by leading experts in the field, the book is underpinned by the latest research and theory and explores a variety of inspirational approaches to teaching and learning in a subject which provides a critical underpinning to the whole school curriculum.

This new, third edition has been comprehensively updated and restructured to emphasise the role of citizenship across the curriculum, exploring a wider range of subjects including geography, modern foreign languages, mathematics and science.

Key topics include:

  • 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: English, drama and media; history, geography and religious education; modern foreign languages; mathematics and science; and RE
  • research in citizenship.

Including key objectives and chapter summaries, together with carefully developed tasks to support your own professional development, Learning to Teach Citizenship in the Secondary School is designed to develop theoretically informed good practice in citizenship education. It is a source of support, guidance and creative ideas for all training citizenship teachers and those teaching the subject as non-specialists, and offers specialists new insight into this crucial subject.
