Early Civic Learning

Civic Learning in Elementary School/Early Education

The elementary school years have enormous potential for developing children’s civic skills and habits. Yet, the need for civic learning opportunities in elementary school has largely been overlooked. With the goal of supporting elementary school civic learning, we investigate existing research and assess how to advance a strategy to help elementary school students become civic ready.
