Educating for American Democracy: A Roadmap for Excellence in History and Civics Education for All Learners

The civics field has long lacked a structure for content and pedagogy experts to collaborate on excellent curricular resources and guidance for the nation on civic and history (C&H) education. This project has three objectives: Discovery (evaluating the current state of C&H curricula and resources); Generation (creating a Roadmap for excellence in C&H education); and Dissemination (discussing and sharing the Roadmap). We expect far-reaching impact by harnessing each PI's diverse and influential networks to increase public awareness of the report and use of its recommendations in districts and schools, especially those serving low-income and rural students. The goal is to lay a foundation for all learners to grasp the value of their American democracy – its past failures and present challenges included – and give them a sense of connection and ownership of this democracy. All students must be equipped with the knowledge, skills, and capacities needed to sustain a thriving republic.
