Critical Civic Literacy: Knowledge at the Intersection of Career and Community
Pollack, Seth S.
Journal of General Education, v62 n4 p223-237 2013
Traditional approaches to civic engagement have been marginalized and have had little impact on the core curriculum. "Critical civic literacy" is an alternative curricular approach to civic engagement that explicitly moves departments, disciplines, and degree programs to examine issues of social responsibility and social justice from the context of their particular field of study.
