Learning to Teach Citizenship in the Secondary School Reviews


'The latest book in a major series aimed at PGCE students and practising teachers...it is a comprehensive and illuminating resource on both citizenship and citizenship education. Part one provides an excellent and thoughtful introduction to local, national and international citizenship. Part two is more mixed, with chapters on the complexities of citizenship education, pupils' learning, the role of language and special educational needs. Part three provides the nuts and bolts of the book, with sound chapters on developing schemes of work, assessment and resources. - Professor David Hicks, TES
