Chicago Public Schools Civic Engagement Evaluation
(2015 - 2016)
Chicago Public Schools launched the Global Citizenship Initiative (GCI) in 2012-2013. GCI provides rigorous curriculum aligned with high standards, supports high quality pedagogy that meets the needs of diverse learners and reflects best practices in civic education, and generates multiple external learning opportunities throughout the city of Chicago. In short, GCI seeks to move civic education beyond merely rote memorization of facts to fully engage students as active participants in civic life – now and in the future. CURL evaluated the 2014-2015 school year as CPS seeks to strengthen and grow the program. An internal report was produced.
