Teaching for Citizenship in Lebanon: Teachers Talk about the Civics Classroom
Akar, Bassel
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v28 n3 p470-480 Apr 2012
"National and Civic Education" is a program of study compulsory across all grade levels in Lebanon aimed at promoting social cohesion and active citizenship. A sample of 19 civics teachers in Lebanon across four of the six governorates participated in semi-structured interviews. The conversations delved into their conceptions of citizenship and citizenship education and their reflections of classroom teaching experiences. Their responses revealed complex inter-relations among nationalist conceptions of citizenship, pedagogies of rote learning, emotional repercussions from controversial topics and limited opportunities to think critically and engage in dialogue in the classroom. (Contains 5 tables.)
