Citizenship will become a statutory part of the National Curriculum in September 2001, supported by both direct funding and voluntary and community projects. This initiative is seen as vital to prepare young people for life as it aims to teach them not just about political institutions but about fundamental issues affecting their lives. This book defines the contribution that geography makes to citizenship and democracy education, and which, indeed, it must make if citizenship education is to be effective in crowded curriculum. It addresses both the ways in which the content and the pedagogy of the secondary geography curriculum can contribute to the teaching of citizenship and ways in which the proposed content of the curriculum for citizenship can be addressed through geography. The book covers the key issues, including: values; ethics; identity; sustainable futures; community; and social exclusion.
