Recommendations for Research, Development, and Dissemination for Ethical-Citizenship Education. Planning for Moral/Citizenship Education.
Hill, Russell A.; Wallace, Joan D., Ed.
Recommendations are presented for organizing research, development, and dissemination activities around the concept of a school-community effort for developing, utilizing, and disseminating Ethical Citizenship Education (ECE) programs in public, nonpublic, and parochial schools. Intended for use by the public and, particularly, by the National Institute of Education, the document is presented in six sections. The first section defines ECE as an effort to teach students the knowledge, skills, and dispositions which enable them to realize in action the ethical-citizenship principles consistent with American democratic traditions. Section two presents a statement of need, outlining the societal imperative for ECE. In the third and fourth sections, the 1976 Moral Citizenship Education planning activities and findings, which provided a background for the present study, are described. The bulk of the report, presented in section five, consists of the recommendations for future ECE efforts. Topics discussed in this section include youth as the ECE target, school-community advisory groups, ECE objectives and content, curriculum guidelines, teaching techniques and instructional models, public policy, dissemination, and television involvement. Tables of recommended ECE activities are included on public policy, theory building, research, development, and dissemination. In the final section, methods of obtaining and managing needed resources are discussed. References are included. (Author/DB)
