We have found that one of the most effective ways to support educators in prioritizing and achieving their civic teaching goals is to provide personalized coaching.
As such, we have worked in partnership with teachers from a myriad of schools serving diverse populations of students. We focus on the existing strengths of the school and unique culture to help educators identify and create a plan for implementing new civic content, lessons, and exercises to help students develop a sense of belonging, democratic fluency, and confidence in using urgent civic skills.
