Addressing the urgent need for maximized civic, character, financial & career education in K-12 classrooms:
Just imagine a generation of students who excel in teach-to-test subjects but have little knowledge of civics, character, financial responsibility and career readiness. Will math and science alone continue our nation’s progress? Our students deserve to learn these guiding lessons–as well as the Great American Story that gives context to their important roles in our country’s future. We must teach them that they hold titles more important than “engineer,” “scientist” or “president.” That title is “citizen.”
Tools, Tactics & Technology for Teaching:
Because these life lessons are solidified through repetition and reinforcement, Super Citizen (3-5) complements, but does not require, prior completion of Super Citizen 1-2. The Super Citizen Program Resource Kit helps educators teach active civics through a 10-week experience that boosts engagement, retention and accountability in 3rd – 5th grade students. The process begins with a high-energy “Kickoff” performance (video or in person) and continues with video-led lesson-starters that walk educators through easy and exciting ways to reach the tech savvy generation in the classroom.
Lessons in American history, civics, financial literacy, character and career readiness are aided by expertly developed lesson plans and engaging digital resources. The Super Citizen Program Resource Kit includes the The Authentic Liberty Replica, stickers, flags, Statue of Liberty Crowns, Statue of Liberty Fun Facts, enrichment reading books, and student workbooks to round out the immersive experience.
Emotional & Impactful From Start to Finish:
The program culminates with a “Graduation Celebration” where students receive certificates, honor local “Torch Team” heroes on stage and stand in front of peers, parents, press and local leaders to prove they understand, and put into practice, like skills learned by studying gratitude, honor, empathy, good character and responsible citizenship.
