|摘要(英文)：||Since August 2002, citizenship education has become a National Curriculum subject in secondary schools in UK. This study explored how this new curriculum can be promoted and how schools can develop effective practices in their own settings. In other words, it aimed to examine current practice and identify what strategies of curriculum practice can help to deliver these aspects of citizenship education in schools.
The project selected three ‘exemplary’ state secondary schools in England for analysis, examining their strategies of implementation and the transferability of their good practices was evaluated. These case-study schools were chosen because of their particular role in the development of policy and their commitment to curriculum management. The research was based on qualitative data from school observation and from interviews with teachers. The findings revealed very different curriculum models and teaching approaches among the schools, but the study was able to identify a number of good practice features, serving as examples for other schools in delivering citizenship education.
