The new Illinois civics course requirement illustrates that the “how” is just as important as the “what” in closing the civic empowerment gap.
Join us at EIU for a free two-day Illinois Civics Summer Workshop! We will unpack course requirements and Social Studies Standards, and provide FREE resources that will help you incorporate democratic simulations, current & controversial issues, and service learning activities into your classroom. Explicit connections to the IL Social Studies Standards, Common Core State Standards, and the Danielson Framework for Effective Teaching.This event if offered through a collaboration between the EIU College of Education and Professional Studies and the Robert R. McCormick Foundation and IllinoisCivics.org.
