Abstract:

""On June 10-13, 2002, the University of Florida and the Reubin O'D. Askew Institute sponsored a Civic Education Workshop in Gainesville, Florida. The topic has relevance throughout the country and particular significance in Florida where the constant flood of newcomers into the state has made civic education essential. Those who arrive from other areas of the country and from other parts of the world have a limited understanding of Florida's history and its government. This lack of knowledge weakens the state's democratic institutions and its ability to address Florida's immediate and long-term needs. The purpose of this workshop was to assist area high school government teachers and, through them, to help students understand the political heritage of this state and the nation and the critical issues facing the future of both. Specifically, the workshop provided teachers with information about the federal system of government in the United States, public policy development, Florida's political heritage, voter behavior, campaigns and political communication, and new ways of teaching these subjects in the classroom. Teachers received information on civic education resources from a variety of sources including the Internet and were provided a forum to discuss common issues and concerns related to civic education instruction."--David Colburn, Provost and Senior Vice President, University of Florida."--Page 2.
