Many countries around the world desire their students to have a positive attitude toward their own nations. Although the task of fostering a positive student attitude toward country is an important one, it may not be easy to achieve. The goal of this chapter is to provide a brief review of the scholarly literature on citizenship education, followed by a theoretical discussion on promoting attitude change particularly via the theory of persuasion, as well as a discussion of a blended learning approach that incorporates the use of persuasive messages, Socratic questions, asynchronous online discussion forums, and personal reflections. This paper concludes with a brief description of a research project of two grade five classes in Singapore that attempted to promote positive student attitude toward their country. The results of our study suggested that the blended learning approach was able to instil a positive student attitude to their country. Finally, we discuss several important lessons learned that could inform the design of future instructional strategies in implementing blended learning for the purpose of citizenship education.
