Courses on Civics Education and Civic Engagement

Integrating Civic Engagement Projects Across the Curriculum

Massachusetts teachers are working to meet the new requirement that every student have the opportunity to complete civic engagement projects between 8th and 12th grades that engage students in real-world issues in their communities. Civics content including media literacy, and broader literacy and practice standards are part of the MA History and Social Science Standards.  In this workshop, participants will plan an effective student-led civic engagement project for ALL learners.  REGISTER
