Teaching about local government

Looking for resources to help your students learn more about government?

Local government is a great example - think of all of the educational possibilities! For example, reading and analyzing public documents, writing letters to officials and figuring out who's responsible for different community services.

We are developing tools to boost civic learning inside - and outside - of the classroom. Let us know what you need to teach students about government, civic participation and leadership in the classroom, in the community or at home.

Students learn civics best through classroom education combined with community learning opportunities including civics experiences and real examples of government and civic life. Help us to make it happen for your students!
