Description - Citizenship Through Secondary History by James Arthur
Education for citizenship and the teaching of democracy in schools, the final report of the advisory group, set up by the Secretary of State for Education, notes a need for citizenship education as a distinct part of the curriculum but also recognises that 'it can be taught in combination with other subjects'. It highlights History as one of the key subjects. This book defines the contribution that History can make to citizenship and democracy education, and which, it must make if citizenship education is to be effective in a crowded curriculum. It addresses both the ways in which the content and the pedagogy of the secondary history curriculum can contribute to the teaching of citizenship and ways in which the proposed content of the curriculum for citizenship can be addressed through History. Theoretical discussion is used to provide a platform for the presentation of practical teaching suggestions. The use of case studies in the final section clarifies classroom issues.
