Citizenship Education in Illinois: What Works?
Becker, Aliza; Wrigley, Heide Spruck
The purpose of this evaluation of citizenship educational services in Illinois is to: (1) document an historic coming together of stakeholders to make available generous funding for citizenship educational services from public and private sources; (2) describe the kinds of programming and technical assistance made possible through this funding; (3) assess the quality of citizenship education programming and technical assistance, highlighting both successes and issues of concern; and (4) make recommendations to address issues raised by the study. The evaluation period extended from April 1999 to March 2000. Multiple methods were used to obtain information. The project kicked off with a meeting of the advisory panel. Information from this meeting helped in the development of the survey that went out to 39 citizenship education programs. Thirty-eight responses were received. Interviews with program administrators were conducted and classroom observations were carried out. (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse for ESL Literacy Education) (Author/VWL)
