About the book

This volume focuses on cross-curricular and extra-curricular activities within the broader context of citizenship education in secondary schools in Germany. It sets out the background and history of citizenship education in Germany before moving on to selected case studies of specific activities in secondary schools in different federal states in eastern and western Germany. These case studies focus on activities centred on two main topics – intercultural education and the National Socialist period in Germany. These activities are not part of formal schooling, but rather represent examples of young people and teachers engaging in citizenship education beyond the classroom – or, in a positive sense, 'not doing it by the book'.
