Project Citizen Workshops (Grades 5-12)
Project Citizen is an interdisciplinary curriculum for upper elementary, middle and high school students designed to teach responsible participation in local and state government. Students work cooperatively to identify a public policy problem in their community, evaluate possible solutions, and develop an action plan for local government leaders to use in address the problem. The work culminates with a class portfolio and mock public hearing that can be part of the Oregon Project Citizen Showcase.
