Overview: How do we ensure our students become engaged citizens and take informed action? By implementing meaningful lessons that build critical thinking, problem solving and participatory skills, that’s how! Through games, lessons, web quests, and more, students learn how the government works and how they can do their part in being an informed, engaged citizen.
