Course Description

AQA AS and A2 Citizenship Course (1101/ 2101) 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 Content 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.
