(Due to COVID-19, many events are cancelling. Please check the state website for up-to-date information on the State Project Citizen Showcase.)Project Citizen a public policy program that brings students together as a community of learners advancing one public concern they feel is most important. Students research, interview and survey affected populations, graph their findings, and share their findings with civic-minded adults who respond and give further direction. For students, there are many options to be meaningfully involved with their larger community. Everyone's input is needed for a robust proposal. For teachers, it's an opportunity to work with students on life-long communication skills in a directional process that includes creating proposals, critiquing sources and class documents, and advancing the chosen proposal.Project Citizen is a traditional public policy framework that works with all grade levels. Teachers are encouraged to consider this interdisciplinary program.
