‘Very thorough, well researched and relevant. A good range of activities, coherent and accessible’ DfES Observer
This pack charts a clear path through these sometimes problematic waters, integrating fully with the citizenship orders, cross-referencing learning outcomes and attainment targets. It is comprehensive, clear and user-friendly. Although no single teaching pack could ever claim to be the only resource necessary, if this pack was the only one a school could buy, then they could do no better. I have been very pleased to trial a few of the activities, and will be putting the pack on my school shopping list as soon as possible.

This term and last term I have taught from the section on Criminal Justice and found it to be very useful. The contents equally support other sources too and this makes the book up-to-date, accurate and more importantly relevant.
Citizenship is a broad remit, but I feel this book has identified key issues and in doing so has expanded these themes to make it a very good teaching aid for all concerned.
