Teacher Perspectives: Connecting constructivism and citizenship

Jose Velazquez: I think the kind of methodology that I was trying to use in this lesson has a direct impact on citizenship and the process of participation. If we are going to talk about citizenship and democratic participation, we have to tailor our lessons to model that kind of behavior. I think these students over the next few weeks will play an active role in the campaign on many different levels. Some of them may be directly involved in the campaign. Some of them are probably going to go home and discuss with their families what we’ve been discussing in class. So they may not have the ability to vote, but they are going to influence the process.
