Academic Papers on Civics Education

by Jonathan Estrin

I went to a conference called Civics 2.0, Citizenship for a New Generation sponsored by the American Enterprise Institute in D.C. It was predominantly researchers and university academics who study our field. There were interesting panels and conference papers by the panelists. Some of these may be of interest in terms of staying current. Below are papers from the conference (PDF files):
