The EU Citizenship Directive defines the right of free movement for citizens of the European Economic Area. It applies to EU citizens and their family members who move to another Member State. This might at first seem like a straightforward definition, but immediately questions arise. Who determines if a person is an EU citizen at all? What about dual citizens of two Member States, or of one Member State and a non-Member State (a 'third State')? What is the position of EU citizens who move to one Member State, and then return to their home Member State?
The Complete Citizenship Resource File is the comprehensive resource pack for teaching Citizenship Education from Years 7 to 11. It contains everything you need to teach lively and engaging lessons that encourage students to take an interest in topical and controversial issues and actively involve themselves in discussion and debate. With a focus on local, national and global perspectives, students are given opportunities to consider the context of their own lives in relation to those of others, therefore developing their sense of social justice as they come to a greater understanding of their world and the worlds of others.
Covering a wide range of topical political, spiritual, moral, social and cultural issues, problems and events, this highly practical resource:
All the activities and worksheets are completely flexible and can be used for individual, pair and group work or form the basis for class discussion. With an emphasis on active learning, this resource is a must have for teachers that want to develop a creative and meaningful Citizenship curriculum and get their students to think critically about their role as citizens in their school, local communities and wider society.
Children growing up today are confronted by four difficult and intersecting challenges: dangerous environmental change, weakening democracies, growing social inequality, and a global economy marked by unprecedented youth unemployment and unsustainable resource extraction. Yet on streets everywhere, there is also a strong, youthful energy for change.
This book sets out an inspiring new agenda for citizenship and environmental education which reflects the responsibility and opportunities facing educators, researchers, parents and community groups to support young citizens as they learn to 'make a difference' on the issues that concern them.
Controversial yet ultimately hopeful, political scientist Bronwyn Hayward rethinks assumptions about youth citizenship in neoliberal democracies. Her comparative discussion draws on lessons from New Zealand, a country where young citizens often express a strong sense of personal responsibility for their planet but where many children also face shocking social conditions. Hayward develops a 'SEEDS' model of ecological citizenship education (Social agency, Environmental Education, Embedded justice, Decentred deliberative democracy and Self transcendence). The discussion considers how the SEEDs model can support young citizens' democratic imagination and develop their 'handprint' for social justice.
From eco-worriers and citizen-scientists to streetwise sceptics, Children, Citizenship and Environment identifies a variety of forms of citizenship and discusses why many approaches make it more difficult, not easier, for young citizens to effect change. This book will be of interest to a wide audience, in particular teachers of children aged eight to twelve and professionals who work in Environmental Citizenship Education as well as students and researchers with an interest in environmental change, democracy and intergenerational justice.
Introduced by Tim Jackson, author of Prosperity without Growth, the book includes forewords by leading European and USA academics, Andrew Dobson and Roger Hart.
Half the author's royalties will be donated to child poverty projects following the earthquakes in Christchurch, New Zealand.
