1 Review
There is now agreement that citizenship should form a major part of the curriculum. That, broadly, is where the agreement ends. What pupils should learn, how and why they should learn it and how that learning should be assessed are all contentious issues.
These questions and others provide the opportunities for theoretical debate yet, at the same time, busy practitioners have to teach citizenship and teach it effectively now.
This helpful book is based on the assumption that theory needs to be related to practice, and also that there is already much good practice from which we can learn.
