Teaching Civic Engagement Across the Disciplines
For a democracy to function effectively, its citizens must participate. Furthermore, these same citizens must deliberate effectively, engage with one another, and arrive at workable compromises. Although these skills are critical for a vibrant society, the means to learn and develop them is lacking in American education today. Teaching Civic Engagement Across the Disciplines evaluates the goals, challenges, and rewards of integrating civic education into the curriculum, highlighting best practices across disciplines and campuses.
Teaching Civic Engagement Across the Disciplines provides supplementary materials and serves as an ongoing resource for educators dedicated to preparing students to be active participants in the democratic process.
