This foundation edition of the original "Citizenship Studies for AQA GCSE Short Course" supports the teaching and learning of the specification and can also be used as a general textbook for the Key Stage 4 Citizenship programme of study. This text has been written by a Citizenship examiner and features coverage of the main topics demanded by the specification, including: school, work and the local community; national and European citizenship; and global citizenship. Each topic comprises three themes that help to ensure that the students become informed and responsible citizens: rights and responsibilities; decision-making power and authority; and participation in citizenship activities. The book also contains advice sections for students on how to plan, carry out and reflect upon coursework activities and prepare for the demands of the exam. It can be used in mixed-ability classes as it is written to cover specification and for lower ability pupils which allow it to be used alongside mainstream books.
