Teaching Community Organizing and the Practice of Democracy
Josephson, Jyl
Journal of Political Science Education, v14 n4 p491-499 2018
This article builds on the political science literature on the pedagogy of civic engagement by discussing a recent pedagogical experiment that treats community partners as leaders and full participants in the design and implementation of community-engaged learning. The courses discussed here combine democratic theory, community organizing and leadership development, and partnership between students and a community organization in carrying out research and action projects on affordable housing.
