This book encourages learners to take a more active role in their community. It explores issues such as rights and responsibilities, community, identity and values, and how they are important to citizenship and community participation.

ACTIVE CITIZENSHIP RESOURCE PACK
The Active Citizenship Resource Pack is a book of photocopiable activities, texts and other resources designed to accompany Mote Oo Education’s Active Citizenship coursebook but can easily be used on its own as a source of instant activities for an English, civics or social science class.
Politics introduces learners to concepts needed to analyse politics on a national level. These include ideologies, governments, constitutions, the media, civil society and political parties. It includes activities and discussions that encourage learners to reflect on how political ideas, institutions and actors are related, and then to apply them to current events in their community and country.
