The Citizen and the Law by Keith West, John Foster


The Citizen and the Law by Keith West, John Foster

With citizenship education occupying a key place within the revised curriculum, this series offers a time-saving way to update or expand provision for the subject. Presented in a full-colour magazine format, these resources should provide a ready-made solution for citizenship education at ages 13-16. In line with the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Education for Citizenship and the Teaching of Democracy in Schools, the text is designed to encourage political literacy, social and moral responsibility, and community involvement. This particular book provides accessible, up-to-date information on Britain's laws and on how the courts, police and prison services operate. Updated for the syllabus changes implemented in 2000, the series also includes the titles: Human Rights , which aims to encourage students to develop a sense of global citizenship by engaging with issues ranging from political freedom and economic injustice to the rights of the disabled; Democracy in Action , which presents students with a picture of how the United Kingdom is governed at local, regional, national and European levels; Global Concerns , a student's book which adds a global dimension to the series, helping to prepare students for life in a rapidly changing, increasingly globalised society; and Teacher's Resources , which offers support for Global Issues , complete with 40 copymasters and detailed notes on how the whole series can assist the teacher in delivering the National Curriculum.
