We offer preliminary training and ongoing support to teachers interested in implementing our action civics curriculum in-house without a Democracy Coach.
Workshops and guidance span the following topics:
Introduction to GC and Action Civics
We provide an in-depth walk-through of the GC curriculum, approach and semester timeline for all teachers implementing our action civics curriculum.
Civics Day Prep
We advise teachers in hosting a successful end-of-semester celebration and platform for student projects, a critical component of the GC curriculum.
Democratic Classroom Pedagogy
We believe that carefully facilitated student-centered instruction helps give voice to students. We support teachers in creating a democratic classroom environment, conducive to building civic motivation and efficacy.
Action Planning Expertise
We offer support to teachers as they drive the movement of their students’ action plans. This includes sharing resources for research on existing and developing legislation and campaigns on the class’ chosen topic.
Local Government Guidance
We are on-hand to help teachers confidently navigate the inner workings and structures of local government, as students’ action plans often dive into the intricacies of city agencies, legislative committees, and more.
We aim to work with every student in a grade level and shift away from individual classroom partnerships, ensuring that Action Civics becomes integral to a school culture.
