Basic Citizenship Competencies Project. Final Report.
Remy, Richard; Turner, Mary Jane
This document is the final report for the second phase of the Basic Citizenship Competencies Project (BCCP). During the first phase of the project, seven basic competencies and attendant capacities were developed by the BCCP staff. Five products dealing with citizenship competencies were developed for specific user groups: (1) a handbook of basic competencies; (2) an instructional briefing guide for teachers and supervisors; (3) a briefing guide for school administrators; (4) a briefing guide for parents; and (5) a community leader briefing guide. The second phase of the project, which this report describes, was devoted to a wide range of activities focused on disseminating project products and ideas to a variety of client groups. First, the report describes initiatives of the project staff to encourage a variety of organizations (such as the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development and the National Education Association) to co-publish project products. Another dissemination effort described in the report involved staff in submitting articles on the project to education related journals. The report then goes on to describe how thousands of individuals were reached through the national networks of both the Mershon Center and the Consortium. Another effort described was presentations made at professional meetings. A final dissemination effort was workshops. Project staff conducted workshops with school districts who were dealing with the problems of implementing citizenship education programs. Many "on-demand" workshops were also conducted for groups on specific problems. The appendices, which comprise the bulk of the publication, conclude the report. (Author/RM)
