International Journal of Instruction, v10 n1 p289-306 Jan 2017
This paper examines the impact of School Outreach Tour (SOT-A) program,one of the projects of the Citizens Archive of Pakistan (CAP), a non-profit organisation on the perceptions and attitudes of Grade-8 Students of partners' schools. The sample in this study consists of (n = 139) students of Grade-8, selected by convenience sampling from five partners' public schools. Data were collected by means of a self-constructed "Survey Tool" consisting of 26 items through which participants were asked to respond using the five point Likert Scale. The collected data were analysed using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS). Nonparametric Chi-Square test was applied for contingency and frequency of the items. The results showed that CAP partners' schools students generally had moderately favourable attitude and perception towards the SOT-A program. The content of the CAP curriculum enhanced students' knowledge and understanding about rights and duties and citizenship education. It had created a positive impact on holistic personality and skill development. However, it was found to be less effective in developing a deep civic sense. The study has serious implications for the policy and practice for CAP's partners schools.
