Grants to this Grantee
for a research-practice partnership to test theories of diffusion and scaled impact  
Generation Citizen, which promotes civics education for all U.S. students, will form a new research-practice partnership with Oklahoma City Public Schools and Tufts University’s Center for Information & Research on Civic Learning and Engagement. This new partnership, called the Oklahoma City Education Research Alliance, seeks to scale collaborative project-based learning in the locale. This work will benefit school districts by presenting an approach that can be readily adopted in other places and by introducing new theory about the spread of innovative practices.
