Inquiry-based project learning that leads to relevant, real change in students’ communities is what Project Citizen: Civics in Action is all about!
Join us for the statewide Project Citizen: Civics in Action Showcase at the Capitol on May 22, 2020. Teachers are also invited to come to a workshop training after the Showcase on how you can implement this fantastic program in your classroom the following year.
The Basics of a Civics in Action Project:
Step 1 – Identify a problem or gap in policy in your community
Step 2 – Suggest several research-based solutions
Step 3 – Pick a Solution that will have the best outcome & Develop an Action Plan to implement the Solution
Step 4 – Testify about Steps 1-3 and be prepared to answer questions from a panel or government entity associated with the issue.
Step 5 – Reflect on the problem-solving process and its outcome
Change your Community, Change your World!
