This book explores four interrelated themes: rethinking civic
education in light of the diversity of U.S. society; re-examining
these notions in an increasingly interconnected global context;
re-considering the ways that civic education is researched and
practiced; and taking stock of where we are currently through use
of an historical understanding of civic education.
There is a gap between theory and practice in social studies
education: while social studies researchers call for teachers to
nurture skills of analysis, decision-making, and participatory
citizenship, students in social studies classrooms are often found
participating in passive tasks (e.g., quiz and test-taking,
worksheet completion, listening to lectures) rather than engaging
critically with the curriculum. "Civic Education for Diverse
Citizens in Global Times," directed at students, researchers and
practitioners of social studies education, seeks to engage this
divide by offering a collection of work that puts practice at the
center of research and theory."
