Civics in Action

A Statewide Effort to Promote Informed Citizenship and Start a Dialogue about the Constitution

Do students know enough about US government to pass the citizenship test? What does that say about their level of awareness as citizens in a democracy? Civics in Action Brings an attorney into the classroom for an interactive presentation to introduce students to their role as citizens and increase their knowledge of the US Constitution.

Civics in Action is a program for students in middle and high school classrooms.
