Sometimes, I run into people who have not heard about iCivics. I tell them that about half of middle school social studies teachers in the U.S. use us. They are generally impressed with our reach. Frankly, when I took over as Executive Director 2 years ago, I was impressed myself.
As the election draws near, there has been an expressed interest in how we might improve civic knowledge, civic participation, and civic education in the United States. Here are two great radio interviews with the leadership from Teaching for Democracy Alliance members, iCivics and CIRCLE.
The holiday season is right around the corner, and iCivics is looking for student artwork to include in this year's holiday cards! Artwork should reflect the student’s perspective on peace and civic engagement. The winner will have their art displayed on our printed and electronic holiday cards.
