Yesilbursa, Cemil Cahit
Educational Research and Reviews, v10 n5 p634-640 Mar 2015
The current study explores Turkish pre-service social studies teachers' perceptions of "good" citizenship. The participants were 580 pre-service social studies teachers from 6 different universities in Turkey. The data were collected through an interview form having one open-ended question and analyzed according to open coding procedure. The results of the study show that Turkish pre-service social studies teachers' perceptions of "good" citizenship are personally responsible, in other words, accordant with the traditional citizen type. Accordingly, pre-service social studies teachers mostly perceive good citizens as people who are honest, decent, loyal to the government and patriotic.
