About this book

This book presents educators with research-based strategies to promote civic education in their classrooms. Going beyond theory and measures of achievement, these methods focus on information location, evaluation and activation, dialogue in the classroom, understandings of discourse in popular culture and policymaking, and understanding the role of STEM disciplines in democracy. The author also furthers considerations of how the political process can provide meaning and new visions of justice in a globalized world, and advance student leadership and academic writing in the information age.  As the world faces unprecedented levels of poverty, wealth disparity, environmental destruction, and ethical questions regarding biotechnology, the United States needs knowledgeable citizens to effectively deal with these issues. Letizia provides teachers and teacher educators with the needed methods to foster these types of democratic considerations.

Reviews

“This volume recommends a series of research based strategies for K-12 educators that will promote social, emotional, and civic education. It also raises profound questions about the essential goals for K-12 teaching and learning. The foundation for an engaged democratic citizenry has always been social, emotional, and civic as well as cognitive education and this volume supports and furthers this foundational goal.” (Jonathan Cohen, President, National School Climate Center, USA, and Adjunct Professor in Psychology and Education, Teachers College, Columbia University, USA)
