Supporting Global Awareness: A Proposal for Youth Civic Engagement
Epstein, Shira Eve
Schools: Studies in Education, v14 n1 p141-154 Spr 2017
While students' civic efforts are often focused on local social problems, this article highlights various ways a locally oriented civic project can be "stretched" to build students' global awareness. I present a series of recommendations for educators on how to foster the global civic mindedness of youth. Furthermore, I illustrate the application of these recommendations through a discussion of a school-based civic engagement project focused on a school's inadequate sex education curriculum. I offer this example to inspire teacher thinking about the enactment of global civic projects.
