Abstract

This chapter compares the English tradition of active citizenship education (embodied in the national curriculum for Citizenship) with the US tradition of service-learning. Following some initial observations about the different traditions in the two countries the chapter focuses on three significant issues which are common to both traditions: (a) the type of experience which educators should facilitate; (b) the relationship between that experience and citizenship education; and (c) the pedagogy of experiential learning. The concluding section makes some suggestions as to why, given there are such significant shared educational and political concerns, the English educational community have not connected more positively with the longer established tradition of service-learning.
