  • Expands the study of citizenship education pedagogies to world's most dynamic region and societies
  • Presents a complex picture that shows an array of both similarities and differences in approaches to the citizenship education pedagogies across the region
  • Provides new insights into the global, national, and local dynamics that shape citizenship education across Asia and the Pacific
  • Reveals critical tensions between global and national forces over the shaping of the citizenship education pedagogies
How are students in Asia and the Pacific taught to be effective citizens? Following two successful volumes previously published in this series, Citizenship Education in Asia and the Pacific: Concepts and Issues and Citizenship Curriculum in Asia and the Pacific, this volume focuses on citizenship pedagogies that are promoted by governments in the region, advocated by scholars, and adapted in the schools and classrooms where citizenship education takes place every day. Thirteen case studies from diverse societies in Asia and the Pacific highlight the ways in which teachers and students think about, experience or plan for citizenship teaching and learning. Different methods – vignettes, student surveys, case studies and literature reviews – are used to portray these experiences, from both macro- and micro-analytic perspectives. The wide array of case studies provides rich information and insights into the realities and possibilities of pedagogies for citizenship across the region.
