Ramirez, Pablo; Jaffee, Ashley Taylor
International Journal of Multicultural Education, v18 n1 p45-67 2016
This paper examines how two social studies teachers in New York and Arizona engage newcomer youth in active citizenship education. Using a framework of culturally responsive active citizenship education, this article sheds light on how two teachers, in two different social, political, and educational contexts, enact critical citizenship practices and culturally responsive teaching. Findings from this study have the potential to inform how best to support newcomer students' understanding of and engagement in active citizenship in their local community(ies).
