Building Citizenship Skills in Students

An action research project implemented a program for the development of citizenship, cultural awareness, and positive character attributes. Targeted population consisted of middle and high school students in several growing, middle class communities located in northern Illinois. Problems of lack of awareness and sensitivity are documented through data revealing decreased civic awareness with a definite need to have students participate in activities that promote democracy and cultural awareness. Analysis of probable cause data revealed that students were monocultural--lacking in community service skills and citizenship responsibilities.
