Civic Engagement, Taking Action, and the State Seal is a project created through a partnership between the California History Social-Science Project (CHSSP) and the Leveraging Equity and Access in Democratic Education (LEADE) initiative.

Who:

What:

  • Join us for a workshop series about authentic civic learning that centers equity, access, and empowerment.  
  • Some of the overarching topics that will frame this series are: 
    • Exploring current opportunities for civic engagement and empowerment in schools
    • Exploring how the State Seal of Civic Engagement supports a vision for Action Civics
    • Identifying stakeholders involved in deepening civic education and engagement in your context
    • Assessing civic engagement and action projects
    • Developing a plan to integrate civic education across multiple disciplines

When:

Where:

Why:

  • This series aims to advance a vision of civic learning that is holistic, democratic, rooted in inquiry, and directly relevant to our students and their communities.  It should support students to investigate issues that matter to them, explore concepts of power, develop historical context, engage in discussion and deliberation, and learn how to create change in their communities and society.
