Educational Forum, v74 n2 p117-128 2010
Civic education is an issue of growing and serious concern. There is diminished time for civics, fewer course offerings, and gaps in students' civic knowledge, skills, and dispositions. The role of teacher education in addressing this problem is one area deserving additional focus. This article describes the project begun by the secondary education faculty at one university to provide teacher education candidates in all content areas with the ability to address civics in meaningful ways.
