From the Publisher"Beth Rubin has hit a home run with Making Citizens. This theoretically rich and highly engaging book presents a bold new civics-centered curriculum approach that works. This is a must read for teachers and teacher educators who yearn for specific, vivid, research-based examples of what exemplary civic education looks like in practice. Rubin and the teachers she worked with to develop this curriculum have given our field a real gift.
—Diana E. Hess, Professor of Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Wisconsin–Madison
"Beth Rubin recognizes that the political left and right agree on at least one thing: social studies curriculum and instruction matter profoundly in youth identity-formation. This is a terrific project and a much-needed demonstration of an innovative yet doable alternative to business as usual."
