Addressing Threats to Democracy and Promoting Civic Education in Classrooms
Understanding what a democracy is and how it works is important for students of all ages. Using last year’s January 6, insurrection as a teachable moment, we assembled free lesson plans and educational resources to help students reflect on the events leading up to and on that day, as well as resources that explore ongoing threats to the integrity of a democratic government, including how to foster media literacy and civil discourse, understand voter suppression and how to identify misinformation. Included are civic education lessons that can be adapted across the curriculum.
