Curricular design as a mean for innovation has long been used to promote effective change in education. Providing elementary school students of various ages with authentic and viable citizenship experiences should be seen as a policy priority. Such a policy promotes quality in education and advances the skills attitudes and behaviors of children in an increasingly multicultural and information oriented society. In this paper a recent curricular innovation with direct applications to citizenship education in Greece is examined. Findings from a study of the teacher views and priorities towards this innovation are presented through a varied topology using both quantitative and qualitative data.
