Civic Engagement: A Tool for Building Democracy
Calderon, Jose Zapata
Teacher Education and Practice, v24 n3 p324-326 Sum 2011
With the growth of a global economy, there is the need for a type of educational system that promotes civic engagement as a means of building new models toward a democratic society. In this article, the author discusses civic engagement as a tool for building democracy. As educators seek to develop models of civic engagement in teacher education, the author suggests that it is important to look toward new ways of carrying out democratic forms of learning and curriculum building in classrooms that connect to new models of building democratic participation in the communities.
