Civic Education and Citizen Engagement: Mobilizing Voters as a Required Field Experiment
Bennion, Elizabeth A.
Journal of Political Science Education, v2 n2 p205-227 Aug 2006
This article explains the benefits and challenges of requiring undergraduate political science students to act outside the classroom to mobilize voters. Although several published articles describe student engagement with social service agencies, policy research, community outreach, and classroom simulations, this article fills a gap in the political science literature on civic education and service learning: the value of involving students directly in electoral politics. (Contains 2 figures and 12 notes.)
