Fostering Students' Civic Skills: Education for Sustainable Democracy
Ata, Atakan
Georgia Educational Researcher, v16 n1 Article 7 p74-91 Win 2019
This qualitative study explored factors that supported teachers in their efforts to promote students' critiquing, communicating, and collaborating skills. Despite the various challenges that public schools face today, they are most likely the very institutions to play a critical role in individuals' civic skills development. Individual in-depth interviews were the primary method used to understand the participants' perspectives on instruction and the factors that foster students' civic skills. Factors that supported the participants in their efforts to promote civic skills among their students were found to be teacher collaboration, planning, and teacher motivation. Details and the implications of the findings were discussed.
