This 2-lesson curriculum aims to reinvigorate civic attitudes and motivation in students. By drawing students’ attention to their local governments, systems and services, students will gain appreciation for the potential power of their actions at a local level. Students will work together to choose an issue in their community they feel needs to be solved, and then seek out a local elected official to address it.

By the end of the two lessons, students will be better equipped to engage in their local communities. Additionally, these lessons will help to produce a renewed perspective of political engagement of positivity, hope, and productivity, rather than one of confusion and disillusion.

Effective civics education is more important now than ever.
