How does the program work?
Citizenship Education has three parts to extend throughout the school year. Once you're registered, download the materials, then print and copy.

1 In September, teach a series of five lessons designed to help students engage the tools for ethical citizenship. Together you’ll explore concepts of citizenship and encourage awareness of heroism in both everyday and extraordinary acts.

2 From October through April, teach one lesson per month.These seven lessons combine provocative content and solid, skill-building activities.

3 To culminate the learning process, your teaching team and students will collaboratively plan a Tom Burnett Memorial Day of Service using the mini-lessons included in the curriculum. 

Your students will have an opportunity to reach out into the community and develop their values of service, empathy, and compassion. The event is a very meaningful way to wrap up the school year.

Never doubt that
a small group of
thoughtful,
committed
people can
change the world.

Indeed, it is
the only thing that
ever has
