civics

My Mission

“When I first began teaching civics in 2014, I had no idea what I was doing. What I did know was that resources available just did not work for my students. This began my passion for creating resources that teachers would love and students will learn from.”

Alaina, Ms. Social Studies Teacher

These are the sites I highly recommend:

When teaching civics there is two routes you can take
The first way is to start with the enlightenment, events leading to the declaration, articles of confederation, constitution, focus on each branch, citizenship, and international affairs.
The second way is to start off with citizenship first (which is the easiest unit for students). Once students know what it means to be a good citizen than you would go into the enlightenment.
I personally like the first choice because it takes students through a journey of how we became America. It makes more sense than jumping around from modern-day citizenship to the enlightenment.
