Developed in partnership with Edexcel, "Citizenship Today" has be en written by a team of experienced teachers and authors with expertise in the many aspects of citizenship covered in the new Edexcel GCSE Short Course in Citizenship Studies. The volume features an active, skills-based approach that should stimulate students and recognise and reward their contributions to school and community activities. Given the practical implications for teachers and schools of introducing this new and challenging subject, it also features a clear structure and practical guidance on delivery and assessment. Designed to be delivered in the equivalent of one hour a week throughout Key Stage 4, the course should enable students across the ability range to access the content and develop the skills required by the National Curriculum from September 2002. It also provides support and background information to support teachers as well as many activities and suggestions for school and community activities to encourage genuine participation and responsible action by students.

Jenny Wales, Chris Culshaw and Neil ReaichReview:
Praise for the first edition: 'Citizenship Today contains all the information required for the exam. Using it means there are no nasty surprises when it comes to the exam. And this makes teachers, especially non-specialist teachers, and pupils feel secure. The images and examples ensure the subject matter is relevant and engaging too not dry.' Claire Giles, Community College Whitstable 'The Edexcel based text is also very easy to use and I would expect that students and teachers alike would covet this book.' 'The Edexcel text was clear in its section on the Media with good layout and lots of detail and thoughtful tasks. I liked the approach and the intent of the section.' 'The Find Out and Key Terms boxes were very useful and the way the page edges are colour coded made the book easy to navigate.' 'The advice to the student on the exam course and what is required in following this GCSE was very well written and easy to use by student and teacher.' Chris Waller, 'Teaching Citizenship'
