Education through Engagement and Empowerment: The Impact of An Action Civics Program on Student Academic Engagement Outcomes
MetadataShow full item record
There has been relatively little research on the effectiveness of civic engagement programs at promoting student achievement. This thesis attempts to provide some context for the potential of civic engagement programs like Generation Citizen. It examines the link between student participation and attendance and student achievement for those students enrolled in the Generation Citizen program. It builds on previous academic studies around absenteeism and student participation to determine more conclusively the potential benefits of civic engagement programs on student academic achievement.
