It’s That Time of Year Again… Give!Guide Season Has Begun

December 2013 We can’t believe it’s the giving season again! Already holding onto red cups from Starbucks and wearing down jackets. The holidays are fast approaching and we can’t catch our breath in between all of our events and workshops! But that also means it’s Give!Guide season, again. If you haven’t participated in Willamette Week’s Give!Guide before, it is so much fun. Donate and you’ll be entered into raffles each time you do. Plus, CLP has BIG things in store for our donors. Both Rogue & The Roseland have promised fun incentives for our own raffles so start now by heading to the Give!Guide’s donation site.

iCivics: Civics Education for a New Generation

2013 iCivics is a web-based education project designed to teach students civics and inspire them to be active participants in our democracy. iCivics is the vision of Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, who is concerned that students are not getting the information and tools they need for civic participation, and that civics teachers need better materials and support.

      • GAMES – Specifically designed for classroom use, these games are fun, engaging, and aligned with state standards.
      • LESSON PLANS – Written by master teachers, the lessons reinforce and expand on the games.
      • INTERACTIVE ACTIVITIES – Interactive features such as a message board, recognition of student service, and competitions further engage students to create their own civic ideas and projects.
      • MORE TO COME – iCivics is currently developing additional games, lesson plans, and interactive activities that incorporate topics including: Balance of Power, Foundations of Government, and Civic Engagement.
