Educating citizens : preparing America's undergraduates for lives of moral and civic responsibility by Anne Colby( Book )

Reports on how some American colleges and universities are preparing thoughtful, committed, and socially responsible graduates. Many institutions assert these ambitions, but too few act on them. The authors demonstrate the fundamental importance of moral and civic education, describe how the historical and contemporary landscapes of higher education have shaped it, and explain the educational and developmental goals and processes involved in educating citizens. They examine the challenges colleges and universities face when they dedicate themselves to this vital task and present concrete ways to overcome those challenges

Rethinking undergraduate business education : liberal learning for the profession by Anne Colby( Book )
11 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 487 libraries worldwide
"This book is from the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching's three-year effort developed in response to concerns about the failures of business education to prepare undergraduates for their responsibilities in society, including in their business practice. Business leaders stress the importance of liberal learning but most liberal arts courses are not well-integrated with the business curriculum. This important resource reports on examples of how the two can be integrated and offers solid recommendations for improvement. The authors also address the value of some perspectives that business can offer to the liberal arts"--

This book reports the results of a study of educational practices at the college level that prepare students for high quality democratic participation.

It also offers a theoretical statement of the importance, legitimacy, and feasibility of educating for democratic participation as well as a practical handbook, providing clear guidance to faculty and administrators wishing to help their students gain the understanding, skills, and motivation they need to be fully engaged in political life, broadly defined

Competence and character through life ( Book )
2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 311 libraries worldwide
Competence and character are at the heart of our notions of a mature and successful adult, yet many questions about their nature and development remain unanswered. In this collection, leading psychologists, sociologists, and criminologists highlight the potential for positive development in different domains. By positing the possibility of multiple pathways of development rather than a single universal sequence, the contributors view the individual as potentially advancing in a wide range of interrelated and overlapping competencies. The nine essays in the book cover the years from youth to middle age, and they examine a range of social, political, and moral components of "competence and character" from teenage pregnancy and life-planning skills to voting records and educational attainment in low income households. Unlike comparable studies, this original and comprehensive volume frames issues, events, and longitudinal data through the lens of possibility rather than the pathology of defeat, stressing a positive approach to our conception of human potential

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 66 libraries worldwide
Do American schools adequately prepare students to take part in society? Can a complacent, ill-informed public trace its problems back to the nation's classrooms? This program examines the impact of the No Child Left Behind Act on the ability of public education to involve students in civic and governmental processes. Filmed in economically and culturally diverse schools, the program includes provocative interviews with teachers, administrators, and nationally known experts-all of whom discuss the challenges of helping children become knowledgeable citizens while fulfilling the needs of basic education. Scenes of teachers working to engage their students in participatory democracy are included
