Synopsis

Human Rights by Simon Foster

This new edition encourages students to engage with issues ranging from political and economic injustice to the rights of children. Includes coverage of the UK Human Rights Act and examines the balance between rights and responsibilities. Presented in a stimulating, full-colour magazine format, these new resources provide a ready-made solution for Citizenship Education at 13-16. In line with the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Education for Citizenship and the Teaching of Democracy in Schools, Citizenship in Focus is designed to encourage political literacy, social and moral responsibility, and community involvement. Human Rights encourages 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 presents students with a clear and balanced picture of how the United Kingdom is governed at local, regional, national and European levels. The Citizen and the Law provides accessible, up-to-date information on Britain's laws and on how the courts, police and prison services operate. The new Global Concerns student's book adds a crucial new global dimension to the series, helping to prepare students for life in a rapidly changing, increasingly globalised society. A new edition of the Teacher's Resources , including support for Global Issues and containing 40 copymasters and detailed notes on how the whole series can help you to deliver the new national curriculum will replace the existing edition in September 2000.
