Effective ways of delivering citizenship in the classroom Finding a good format for delivering effective citizenship in the classroom can be a challenge. Jamie Elliott Citizenship co-ordinator at Deincourt School, Chesterfield, a school which was rated as excellent by Ofsted in the subject, thinks he has found the answer.
With a focused look at Jamie’s Year 9 special needs lesson on the rights and responsibilities of children, the programme reveals how the format could be applied to any citizenship lesson. The format includes a range of techniques including an engaging starter, card sorting, case study evidence and circle time. Jamie also gives advice on planning and producing the resources for such a lesson.
