Many Civic Spirit Educators have incorporated new civic-related content into existing required courses or electives or introduced new classes inspired by their learning and study within the Educators Cohort program.
See the various syllabi Civic Spirit teachers have created over the years.
- William Reusch at Shalhevet High School introduced a new course called “Advanced Studies Civics”.
- Rose Tomassi at St. Joseph High School introduced a new course called “Introduction to Philosophy: Deliberation, Dialogue, and Decision.” See HERE for how Rose weaved the course content into Civic Spirit’s 3-pillar approach for teaching civic education.
- Caitlin Kerwin at La Salle Academy designed and led the Civic Scholar Project within the school’s “Introduction to American Politics” course.
- Daniel Linehan, Assistant Principal / Dean of Students at St. Jean Baptiste, created a Civic Spirit elective course for which students have to be recommended by another teacher. The course is called, “Faithful Citizenship,” and integrates both American and religious texts.
- As History Department Chair of Yeshiva University High School for Girls, Audi Hecht created a Civic Spirit elective course for high school juniors and seniors.
