ACT Citizenship CPD - Module 2 What is citizenship?
The term ‘Citizenship’ means different things, to different people, in different contexts. Citizenship education is therefore often misunderstood. This training session outlines these different interpretations, and clarifies what Citizenship is really all about. It argues that Citizenship is not just a new subject, but a new kind of subject, and more than a subject. You can download this module here. WHAT IS CITIZENSHIP?
ACT have developed a range of CPD modules to support the training and development of all those engaged in teaching citizenship. Each module has the same structure with:
- an introductory task
- two main activities and a plenary; and
- a supporting PowerPoint presentation and resources.
The modules are intended to be delivered in a three-hour session or twilight CPD session, but can easily be adapted if you have less time available.
It is recommended that you select a group of modules relevant to your setting and deliver them on a regular basis for example once a term or half term.
