Putting "Community" into Citizenship Education: The Need for Prosociality.
Oliner, Pearl
Theory and Research in Social Education, v11 n2 p65-81 Sum 1983
The focus of citizen education has traditionally been on the institution of government. Instead, citizenship education should emphasize the teaching of democratic behavior and values and the practice of prosociality. Prosocial behavior is defined as actions that are intended to aid another person without the actor's anticipation of external reward. (CS)
