Series: Teaching Engaged Citizenship

These mini-lessons make it easier to fit civics education into a variety of social studies classrooms. They are up-to-date: many activities refer to recent events, such as COVID-19, and make use of young people’s aptitude for creating and sharing information digitally. The mini-lessons can be used in conjunction with Teaching with Historic Places lessons or on their own. This series was created by Talia Brenner, a NCPE intern with the Cultural Resources Office of Interpretation and Education.
