A Simple Activity to Engage Educators, Community, or Students in Thinking about Civic Education: The Citizenship Brainstorm
This brainstorm activity has been used to introduce teachers, administrators, parents, community members, and students to the Civic Mission of Schools by having them think about the attributes of an informed, effective citizen. Teachers have used this activity at the beginning of a course, and have asked students to add to the lists of attributes throughout the course of the year. Campaign staff members have used the activity to open teacher professional development sessions and have debriefed lessons and activities by referencing the lists to point out civic knowledge, skills, and dispositions addressed.
