Project Citizen is a civics/government curriculum that promotes competent and responsible participation in government. An interactive project-based learning model, Project Citizen emphasizes collaborative work, research and analysis, and engages students in learning how to monitor and influence public policy.
Students work together to identify and study a public policy issue, research and evaluate options, select a solution to the problem, and develop an action plan. They will understand how to prepare for and access appropriate government channels when seeking to alter public policy.
The final product is a board and portfolio displaying the student’s work. Find instructions for the display board and portfolio binder in Instructions and Teacher Tips below. There is an optional opportunity for students to present and display their work at a State Showcase at the State Capitol.
