Areas of Expertise & Civic Involvements
Maloyed’s research is on how civics is taught in public schools and higher education. She has published on the politics of developing civics curricula, including the role of state school boards and other political actors in shaping standards, and how testing (or the lack thereof) affects the way the subject is taught. She is interested in the way local culture and place affects the formation of civic identity.
