We’re ensuring no student goes without crucial lessons by placing this innovative program in schools across the nation. See how curriculum writers, ex-Cartoon Network creatives and musicians are bringing the lessons of civics, character, financial literacy, careers and history to life for young Americans. Liberty Learning Foundation places the program kits, trains teachers and facilitates in-school experiences that excite children and rally entire communities.
Imagine what happens when you pair curriculum experts with ex-Cartoon Network creatives and professional musicians to tackle civics, character, financial literacy, career exploration and our great American Story …That’s just what Liberty’s Legacy has done with it’s grade 1-2 Super Citizen Program. The program is a quick, quirky and compelling way to help educators round out the equation for teaching our Next Great Americans.
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” even … “president” … That title is citizen.
The Super Citizen Program Resource Kit (grades 1-2) centers on the one-of-a-kind “Hands on Liberty” video series. In the 10-episode series, a hilarious cast of hand-puppet characters entertain, engage and teach students lessons in civics, financial responsibility, character and the great American story that illustrates their important roles in America’s future. Based on proven age-appropriate teaching methods, the groundbreaking program uses witty monologue, art, poetry, vocabulary, pop quizzes and “Schoolhouse Rock”-style songs to boost engagement and retention of core concepts. Each episode includes follow-up lesson plans, worksheets and ten “Libby Liberty” books to ensure that the Super Citizen experience lays a lasting foundation for our Next Great Americans.
