Course Overview
Citizenship studies provide a framework and practical tools to understand and participate in society on a number of levels – local, national and global.  As well as the course and the textbook, it will be useful to keep up with television news, newspapers and magazines.

Course Synopsis
The Course is divided into two modules, each of which is divided into four lessons. All of the lessons will have references to relevant textbooks and to carefully selected websites. At the end of each lesson there is a set of key words – democracy, freedom of speech etc. After studying the lesson, you should be able to provide an outline of what these phrases mean and the key debates involving them.  Each second lesson has a tutor marked assessment which, when completed, should be sent to your tutor.

Studying citizenship introduces various terms and concepts that are subject to various definitions and debate. You will be required to recognise and understand these terms when you meet them and also to apply them to real-life situations.  Citizenship is not a dry academic study and there will be opportunities to explore how it is relevant to your everyday life as a citizen:  from the process of contacting one’s MP to your rights to protest and demonstrate; legal and economic rights and access to resources to the global structure of power and institutions.

Each module of the course corresponds to the examination unit. The lessons have been arranged to follow the syllabus and to provide for ease of understanding and topic coverage so may be of different length and difficulty. Unit 1 has been built around a basic outline of British parliamentary democracy and how it is structured.  Unit 2 then explores the notion of citizenship and how it is placed within the former.  It would make sense to work these two units in parallel, moving from the general to the particular.

Course Synopsis

The Course is divided into two modules, each of which is divided into four lessons. All of the lessons will have references to a textbook (see above) and to carefully selected websites. At the end of each lesson there is a set of key words – democracy, freedom of speech etc. After studying the lesson, you should be able to provide an outline of what these phrases mean and the key debates involving them.  Each second lesson has a tutor marked assessment which, when completed, should be sent to your tutor.

Studying citizenship introduces various terms and concepts that are subject to various definitions and debate. You will be required to recognise and understand these terms when you meet them and also to apply them to real-life situations.  Citizenship is not a dry academic study and there will be opportunities to explore how it is relevant to your everyday life as a citizen:  from regional and national identity to global citizenship and the challenges of balancing them; conflict resolution to bringing about social and political change on a global level through institutional channels and direct action.

Each module of the course corresponds to the examination unit. The lessons have been arranged to follow the syllabus and to provide for ease of understanding and topic coverage so may be of different length and difficulty.  The third and fourth modules build upon take for granted a working knowledge and understanding of the issues in the first and second.  Unit 3 has been structured around how different social, ethnic and religious identities can conflict with a national idea of citizenship and how they can be reconciled or arbitrated; Unit 4 explores issues of conflict between national identities and civic concerns (the environment, famine etc) on a global scale, institutionally and socially. These are similarly themed but in different contexts so could be studied simultaneously.
