K-12 Civic Literacy

Building experience and knowledge for

college, career and civic life

GenerationNation’s educational tools and programs offer students in kindergarten through high school a wide range of opportunities to learn about government, citizenship, leadership and more.

Classroom activities introduce K-8 students to civic learning through social studies, math and language arts and further strengthen civic knowledge and skills in high school World History, Civics & Economics, US History and other courses. The resources are tied to curriculum standards, and support 21st century learning including – but not limited to – civic literacy. Hands-on activities enable students to experience civics and leadership in action – which evidence shows is the best way to learn.
