ACT has developed this 'Big Picture for Outstanding Citizenship' to help teachers and schools design a curriculum that prepares pupils for the challenges and responsibilities of the 21st century and to develop high quality citizenship provision.
A report evaluating the educational resources available to support the teaching and exploration of identity, diversity and citizenship.
This report was written by Ted Huddlestone of the Citizenship Foundation following the publication of the independent report on 'Diversity and Citizenship: curriculum review' (2007) for the DfES led by Sir Keith Ajegbo.
The origin of this work was something of a lighthearted challenge - to devise a Citizenship education activity about pirates to be used on September 19th International Talk Like a Pirate Day. The serious aspects however are those that ask about piracy today and explore deep ethical and values questions about the law, human rights and globalisation. View the resource here.

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?
