Youth Voices, Public Spaces, and Civic Engagement Hardback
Edited by Stuart (University of Notre Dame, USA) Greene, Kevin J. (University of Notre Dame, USA) Burke, Maria K. (University of Notre Dame, USA) McKenna
Part of the Routledge Research in Education series
This collection of original research explores ways that educators can create participatory spaces that foster civic engagement, critical thinking, and authentic literacy practices for adolescent youth in urban contexts.
Casting youth as vital social actors, contributors shed light on the ways in which urban youth develop a clearer sense of agency within the structural forces of racial segregation and economic development that would otherwise marginalize and silence their voices and begin to see familiar spaces with reimagined possibilities for socially just educational practices.
