This is a complete guide to citizenship education which challenges teachers to enable pupils to make a difference to themselves and to society. Citizenship education was introduced into the curriculum as the subject to bring about a change in the political culture of a nation. However, without taking a radical approach to the teaching of this subject, its core values are likely to be lost. "Teaching Citizenship Education" introduces the central themes of the citizenship curriculum and evaluates the success of a number of delivery methods currently being used throughout the UK. Ralph Leighton adopts some of the insights and arguments provided by advocates of the radical and democratic approach to education to demonstrate the citizenship education can become a liberating and empowering force for change. He encourages readers to think about the nature of the subject and the experiences they are providing for their students, and provides a framework for how to go about creating something which really is more than just a subject. A companion website supports the text to ensure that the material remains up-to-date with current thinking and teaching strategies.

This title is a 'must-have' for all those looking to teach citizenship education with confidence and imagination.

"'Ralph Leighton has produced a passionately written, thoroughly engaging book which will be of interest and value to all those involved in citizenship education. Reaching back to the roots of radical education and looking forward to what he sees as the form of citizenship education necessary to celebrate and bring into being a genuinely democratic society, this book will challenge experienced and beginning professionals.' (Ian Davies, Professor of Education, University of York)"
