Summary: This book breaks new ground in our understanding of the development of social consciousness and social responsibility in young people and the educational practices that promote this development. Berman shows that children' s awareness of the social and political world emerges far earlier and their social and moral abilities are more advanced than we thought. Draw ing on the research literature in such fields as moral development, citizenship education, political soci
alization, prosocial development, and psychosocial development, Berman provides educators and researchers with the developmental understandings and ins tructional strategies necessary to enable students to become active, caring, and responsible members of our social and political community.

View Author Bio
Berman, Sheldon :
Sheldon Berman is the Superintendent of Schools in Hudson, Massachusetts. Prior to assuming this superintendency in 1993, he was one of the founders of Educators for Social Responsibility and served as President from 1985 to 1993. He is the co-editor (with Phyllis LaFarg e) of Promising Practices in Teaching Social Responsibility, also published by SUNY Press.
"I believe this book pushes the field of educational and developmental psychology to a new level. It addresses som e of the most pressing issues of our time. The importance of the development of a socially responsible citizenry capable of working effectively toward the common good cannot be underestimated in a society torn by privatism and individualism as is ours. "
--Mary Field Belenky, University of Vermont, co-author of Women's Ways of Knowing
"Berman pushes us to consider how more than service opportunities or isolated courses in contemporary issues will be needed if students are to become engaged citizens. In doin g so, he lays the groundwork for a movement to reclaim the civic purposes that once undergirded American education. Achieving this end will require a transformation of curriculum, instruction, and school structures aimed at incorporating multiple perspecti ves, providing more room for student voices, and supporting the formation of interactive school communities in which students feel cared for and influential."
--Gregory Smith, Lewis and Clark College, author of Education and the Environment: Learning to Live with Limits
