Concern about the future of a democratic society is not new. However, the commitment to equip young citizens with the knowledge and skills to enable them to be vigilant, to do something, and to speak up, is. The purpose of Citizenship Education is ultimately to contribute to the continuance and development of just and democratic societies, with vibrant and active engagement of citizens. Citizenship Education is education about democracy, but more importantly it is education for democracy.

This highly practical and passionate book outlines the essential elements of teaching Citizenship effectively. It covers:

- teaching and learning Citizenship- planning to teach Citizenship- implementing whole school initiatives- assessment in Citizenship education, and much more.

This is essential reading for all those involved in Citizenship Education in secondary schools.

'Overall I was engaged and interested left me feeling empowered as a new Citizenship teacher.'Harsharan Tung, NQT
