Humanities for Civic Education: Preparing Teachers and Students for Engaged Citizenship

Development of a civic literacy and engagement certificate within the undergraduate teacher and general education programs.

The University of Northern Iowa (UNI) proposes a $35,000 NEH Humanities Connections Planning Grant for the project, Humanities for Civic Education: Preparing Teachers and Students for Engaged Citizenship, which will expand the reach of humanities education at UNI by creating a Civic Literacy and Engagement certificate within our general education program. Faculty in the humanities will join faculty from education and the social sciences to learn about best practices in civic education and design curriculum that helps students develop civic knowledge, skills, dispositions, and habits. Their work will culminate in a general education certificate that will center the humanities in civic education and enhance the preparation of K-12 teachers to teach civics and social studies.
