Citizenship in Grades 4 through 6

Based on the original Parents' Union programmes, citizenship in grade 4 consisted of:
1)Stories from the History of Rome (Beesly) - one chapter per term
2)The Complete Citizen (by Richard Wilson) - described as an introduction to civics based on history, literature, and everyday life - 85 pages per term

In 5th and 6th grade:
1)Students read Plutarch (North's translation) - one biography per term
2)They used Smaller Classical Dictionary by Smith.
3)And (per term) they read approximately 25 pages of The Citizen Reader.
(This book is about being an English citizen, so Americans would probably want to use a book about what it means to be a citizen of the U.S., the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, etc.)
