Abstract

This research paper examines the relationship between history teaching, citizenship education and the effect these subjects may have on a student’s notion of national identity, in particular how history education helps shape their perceptions of a British identity. History and citizenship education are both utilised as conduits to increase a sense of a national identity and civic engagement, nation building is strongly affiliated with national history but does history teaching have an impact on students’ perceptions of national identity? And is citizenship education working in producing young persons’
who view themselves as citizens of the United Kingdom? (UK). Additionally given the
level of political interference in history teaching, citizenship education and national
identities do students’ subscribe to political articulations of what Britishness is?
