K-12 Curricula: Active Citizenship Today and Election Central
[posted from Service-Learning Advances newsletter]
Constitutional Rights Foundation Resources
The Constitutional Rights Foundation offers educators two approaches to civic education and service-learning. Active Citizenship Today, a curriculum for grades 5-12 designed to be integrated within any social studies course, involves students in defining and assessing their community’s issues, researching a particular problem, examining and evaluating policies, exploring solutions, and finally taking action by completing a student-directed project.
Election Central helps educators and students explore the election process, past and present, in the United States and around the world. Featuring both historical background and breaking news on the upcoming elections, Election Central is a resource that can be used at any time, with or without a pending election.
