Abstract

Abstract:

Traditional approaches to civic engagement have been marginalized and have had little impact on the core curriculum. Critical civic literacy is an alternative curricular approach to civic engagement that explicitly moves departments, disciplines, and degree programs to examine issues of social responsibility and social justice from the context of their particular field of study.
