Project Citizen

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.

Mock Trial

Mock Trial Workshop for Teachers Its connection with the Common Core is strong. Students practice necessary critical analysis skills (viewing an issue from multiple views, for example) while advancing content (U.S. judicial system, science concepts via trials with science themes) and practicing necessary literacy (reading, writing, persuasive writing and speaking, etc.). Mock trial works because it engages students on many levels and it is fun! Click here for more information on upcoming mock trial workshops.
