citizenship issues are
Citizenship issues are:
  • real: actually affect people's lives;
  • topical: current today;
  • sometimes sensitive: can affect people at a personal level, especially when family or friends are involved;
  • often controversial: people disagree and hold strong opinions about them;
  • ultimately moral: relate to what people think is right or wrong, good or bad, important or unimportant in society.

teaching ideas
  • Classroom Rules (Use as a discussion starter and a writing/drawing prompt.)Start a discussion about the rules that should be followed in your classroom. Write each rule as it is discussed on the board or a chart. Talk about why each rule is important. If students don't suggest anything like the following rules, which relate to the five themes, you can add them:
  • Tell thetruth.
  • Be caring.
  • Respectothers.
  • Be responsible for what you do and say.
  • Be brave enough to do the right thing and to ask for help when you need it.
teaching ideas1
  • Sharing Stories (Use as a discussion starter.)One way of exploring the five themes is simply to ask students to tell about their experiences. Youmaywish to usethefollowingprompts:
  • Tell a story about a time you told the truth, even though that was a difficult thing to do.
  • Tell a story about a time you felt happy or sad for somebody or something.
  • Tell a story about someone you respect.
  • Tell a story about a time you took responsibility for something you had done or said.
  • Tell a story about being brave?
teaching ideas2
  • What Could Happen Next? (Use as a prompt for discussion, drawing, or writing.)Ask students to discuss, draw, or write in response to the following questions:
  • You find a watch on the playground. Whatcouldhappennext?
  • Everybody is in a hurry. A childnear you trips and falls down. Whatcouldhappennext?
  • Your teacher asks the class to be quiet after somebody said something really funny. Whatcouldhappennext?
