Offers a toolkit of ideas for enabling a global approach to ‘local’ citizenship investigations. Approaches include the use of newspapers, statistics, photographs, local visits and web-sites. Teachers involved also share their insights and reflections about key principles and potential pitfalls.

"Trying out these approaches has given me the confidence to explore difficult and controversial ideas with young people, and take calculated risks."
Secondary school teacher, Staffordshire.
