Fostering Civic Responsibility through Service Learning.
Degelman, Charles, Ed.
Service-Learning Network, v8 n1 Spr 2000
This issue of "Service-Learning Network" identifies the skills that students need to become responsible citizens in a democracy. In the issue's lead article, a definition of civic responsibility is created after examining a broad array of competencies and skills put forth by prominent organizations in the field, and a list of competencies that best support civic awareness is provided. "Program Profiles" from Wisconsin, Maine, North Carolina, Mississippi, South Carolina, and other locations support the connection between community service, learning outcomes, and civic education. The article, "CityWorks: A Curriculum Model for Teaching Local Government through Research and Service Learning" (Marshall Croddy), describes a new curriculum for teaching local government through research and service learning. "FYI" lists resources of interest to educators and others working with youth. (BT)
