Learn to build effective citizens by engaging students with issues right outside their back door. Turn local issues like clean water regulation, recreation opportunities and school start times into a magic weapon in civic education.  Explore the vast array of programs and services offered by local government with interactive lessons.  Use local leaders in your classroom as a resource for students to discover leadership qualities.  Designed for k-12 teachers, participants will experience free classroom tested lessons and materials (including simulations) tied to state standards.  Participants will receive a $20 Amazon gift card for successfully completing the course.   This course requires some live attendance through either face-to-face meetings or Zoom video conferencing.
