Generation Citizen Uses Data to Measure the Impact of Community-Based Action Civics
Program data including student and teacher evaluations, classroom observations, and focus groups.
Research studies derived from engagement with external institutions provide valuable data by which to measure progress.
Exposure to Generation Citizen was associated with increased overall academic engagement. Student participation in non-GC classes increased after completing a GC class.
Generation Citizen’s curriculum is project based learning (PBL).
In a recent study, PBL curriculum led to gains in social studies and informational reading. Students using the curriculum experienced a 63% gain in social studies learning, translating to five to six months of increased learning.
The approach also resulted in a 23% gain in informational reading, or an additional two months of learning for the year.
