When Buds are Bursting: On the Disheartening of Students’ Engagement in Civics

Abstract [en]

In this paper I address some of the challenges in civics education regarding globalisation issues in upper secondary school. Political scientists interested in the impact of civics on students’ engagement have concluded that other factors are more important than education itself. We will listen to some teachers and students from schools’ civic education and their view on teaching and engagement. In this paper civics is interpreted in terms of first- and second-order concepts where the second-order concepts could be seen as “how to think like a social scientist”.  I will argue that there is a didactic dilemma for teachers trying to achieve both students who think scientifically and students who leave school as politically engaged. However, this dilemma is not unsolvable and I will hold a position that it might contain answers to some of the questions that political scientists deal with in terms of engagement.
