  • Why Does Citizenship Matter? But the United States and its democracy are constantly evolving and in continuous need of citizens who can adapt its enduring traditions and values to meet changing circumstances. Meeting that need is the mission of the social studies. (NCSS, 2010)

  • The Civic ResponsibilityPreparing students to become active citizens should begin as early as Kindergarten! Outside of parents, YOU are going to the be the first ones to teach little ones about good citizenship!

  • Character Education At its core, global citizenship relies and builds upon character education! What you are doing in your classrooms in the pursuit of creating students of good character already contributes to developing strong national and global citizens!

  • How do you address it? What issues, problems, or concerns have you had concerning citizenship education?

  • The Essential Standards on CitizenshipCitizenship education infused throughout the standards! Standards address both national and global citizenship if considered through a civic lens!
