Citizenship Education by James Arthur

Book Description

This four-volume set brings together key articles from the political and educational literature, providing theoretical discussion and extracts from research reports in citizenship and citizenship education. The first volume focuses on historical and philosophical material. Volume two examines the purposes of citizenship education, including arguments for particular aspects such as 'race', class, gender or broader matters such as justice and equality. The third volume describes and discusses particular forms of education that relate strongly and directly to citizenship education, e.g. global education, character education, political education, moral education, social education). Volume four focuses on material about socialisation, curriculum, pedagogy and assessment. Throughout the 4 volumes key themes are highlighted: What is the nature of citizenship and citizenship education? Why is citizenship education promoted? Where does citizenship education occur? Who is citizenship education for and how does it affect learners and others? "The SAGE Library of Educational Thought and Practice" major works series encapsulates and disseminates the seminal works in the field of educational science and collects together those articles and essays which have been most influential in shaping and driving the discipline. Each multi-volume set presents readers with a collection of both classical and contemporary published works sourced from the foremost publications in the field by an internationally renowned editor or editorial team. Each set includes a full introduction, presenting a rationale for the selection and which contextualises the major work within the discipline, and gives students, researchers and academics insight into the past, present and likely future of that area of research. The series covers both key approaches to studying education theory and the primary sub-fields which form the focus of educational practitioners' work. "The SAGE Library of Educational Thought and Practice" is an essential addition for all libraries throughout the world with an interest in Education.
