Geography is the perfect subject in which to consider the citizenship agenda. At the moment I’m working on a project for Folens.
But how do you make geography overtly citizenship? Simple changes are all that is needed. For example a change in language to use rights, respect and responsibility. an;t go into too much detail – you’ll have to wait for the book 😉
A classic example is the inauguration of President Obama. For example, why did he use his middle name? Hussien? What message did it send out?
I am a great believer in suspending the usual curriculum when big events happen. All KS3 classes will have a lesson on the topic while KS4 will spend 10-15 minutes considering the impacts.
