Are You Educating Students for Democracy?

Publicize your work and share ideas with other educators on Civic Learning Online, a free database of civic learning resources. We are currently gathering exemplars of classroom and community practice, as well as examples of whole schools, small learning communities, and whole districts which have embraced their civic mission with policies, practices, and supports to ensure that all students are prepared for active citizenship.

Submit your example of small learning communities, schools, districts or individual practice examples including:
  • Instruction in government, history, law or democracy
  • Guided discussion of current events
  • Community service and/or service-learning
  • Extracurricular activities to foster engagement with schools and communities
  • Student participation in governance
  • Simulations of democratic processes
Accepted submissions will be recognized as promising practices by the Campaign for the Civic Mission of Schools, a coalition of over forty civic learning organizations. The submitting organization will receive a certificate of merit from the Campaign's National Advisory Council which can be posted online and in the classroom, schoolhouse, and community agency.

Peer-reviewed and up-to-date, Civic Learning Online equips teachers, administrators, and policymakers with the information they need to make civic learning an essential part of every child's education.

Please don't miss this opportunity to be part of the growing movement to restore the civic purpose to our nation's schools!
