Project Citizen Correlates Well With Common Core Standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies
Check the correlation to see how the program fits well with the Common Core State Standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies and assists you in meeting social studies objectives:
Level 1
Level 2
We the People: Project Citizen promotes competent and responsible participation in state and local government. It actively engages students in learning how to monitor and influence public policy and encourages civic participation among students, their parents, and members of the community.

As a class project, students work together to identify and study a public policy issue, eventually developing an action plan for implementing their policy. The final product is a portfolio displaying each group's work.

In a culminating activity, the class presents its portfolio in a simulated legislative hearing, demonstrating their knowledge and understanding of how public policy is formulated. Teachers are encouraged to hold hearings in the classroom or community setting.
