The Influence of Civic Education on Electoral Engagement and Voting
Diana Owen
Associate Professor of Political Science
Georgetown University

Paper presented at APSA’s Teaching and Learning Conference,
Albuquerque, N.M., February 11-13, 2011.

Dr. Owen found that the greater the amount and quality of civic education, the more likely people were to turn out to vote and to participate in campaign activity. Respondents who had no civic education were substantially less likely to vote in 2008 and in prior presidential contests than those who had taken a civics course or participated in a civics program. There is a difference of over 20 percentage points in reported voting between those who have no civic education and those who have taken at least a civics or social studies course.

Paper presented at the 2010 Annual American Political Science Association Conference
September 2–5, 2010
This study is the first to examine the possibility that formal civics training provides a foundation for civic engagement that is conducive to the use of novel methods of engaging the polity. The study found that each step toward greater interactivity in civics instruction predicted greater use of social media in the 2008 elections. Findings also showed that those with civics training were two times more likely to use social media than those without. Extracurricular activities were not found to narrow the gap. Unless extracurricular activities specifically focused on political engagement, such as debate and volunteering for a campaign, they were not found to predict social networking activity in the 2008 election.

Civic Education and the Development of Participatory Norms

Center for Civic Education
Paper presented at the 2010 Annual American Political Science Association Conference
September 1, 2010
This study examines the relationship between civic education and participation in extracurricular activities, and the development of a sense of civic duty. The results indicate that greater exposure to civic education and more active and innovative teaching methods correspond with higher levels of civic duty and voting responsibility, but not a duty to serve in the military. Participation in political and service extracurricular activities is also related to a general sense of civic duty and voting responsibility.
