Thinking about knowledge in citizenship education

In recent years, knowledge has emerged as a contentious issue for curriculum designers and teachers, in England and elsewhere. In this series of blogs from 2018, Lee Jerome, an ACT Council member and Associate Professor of Education at Middlesex University, has sketched out some ideas about how citizenship educators might think about knowledge - from what kinds of knowledge citizens need; how such knowledge relates to citizenship participation; and how teachers might plan for progression in knowledge and understanding.

(1) Knowing and doing citizenship

(2) Progression in citizenship teaching

(3) Progression in citizenship learning

(4) Conceptualising citizenship subject knowledge in the curriculum

(5) Looking for knowledge in the space between civics and service

(6) The perils of content coverage in the GCSE course
