Description

The Complete Citizenship Resource File is the comprehensive resource pack for teaching Citizenship Education from Years 7 to 11. It contains everything you need to teach lively and engaging lessons that encourage students to take an interest in topical and controversial issues and actively involve themselves in discussion and debate. With a focus on local, national and global perspectives, students are given opportunities to consider the context of their own lives in relation to those of others, therefore developing their sense of social justice as they come to a greater understanding of their world and the worlds of others.

Covering a wide range of topical political, spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues, problems and events, this highly practical resource:

  • Covers the entire Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 Citizenship Curriculum;
  • Does your medium and short-term planning for you;
  • Is Citizenship rather than PSHE focused;
  • Deals with the big political issues of the day;
  • Is easily adaptable for use within your own SOWs;
  • Can be used as part of ongoing project work;
  • Is fully photocopiable throughout.

All the activities and worksheets are completely flexible and can be used for individual, pair and group work or form the basis for class discussion. With an emphasis on active learning, this resource is a must have for teachers that want to develop a creative and meaningful Citizenship curriculum and get their students to think critically about their role as citizens in their school, local communities and wider society.
