Civics is a subject area that offers an unlimited supply of complex, engaging primary and secondary source texts for students to read and build understanding from. This is why we believe it makes the perfect partner for English Language Arts lessons, now more than ever. In fact, a recent study done by the Fordham Institute found that engaging students with rich content in civics and social studies appeared to teach reading more effectively than other methods.

If you’ve never used iCivics resources as part of your English Language Arts curriculum [or to embed reading and writing skills into your social studies class], you’ve come to the right place. Our standards-aligned resources listed below will engage your students in high-interest, scaffolded writing assignments and discussions that will develop their non-fiction reading and writing skills to prepare students for College and Career readiness.
