Publication Title Closing the civic engagement gap: the potential of action civics
Description As an initial attempt to more systematically analyze civic education practice, this paper presents four case studies of projects in one action civics program, Generation Citizen. While it is a descriptive study and cannot be used to draw conclusions about best practices in civic education, it can raise questions to guide much-needed further research, as well as share lessons learned that may be applicable to schools or organizations.
