measures of Critical Consciousness

New on the CIRCLE website is a guest post on Critical Consciousness Impact Measures. As the authors (Matthew Diemer, Ellen Hawley McWhirter, Emily J. Ozer, and Luke Rapa) explain, Critical Consciousness “refers to marginalized or oppressed people’s critical reflection on oppressive social, economic, or political conditions, the motivation to address perceived injustice, and action taken to counter injustice.” In their work–together and separately–these scholars have found that students do better when they have more Critical Consciousness. Survey measures are embedded in the post and are available for anyone to use in program evaluations or research, or even just for discussion.
