Scholastic Tool for Teaching Civic Engagement

Scholastic's We the People

An important part of getting students to be civically engaged is for them to have an understanding of our government and how it works. To support this effort, Scholastic recently launched We the People, a free online tool focused on civics education and media literacy for students in grades 4–10. The resource is separated into editions with age-appropriate content for students in grades 4–6 and 7–10. In the edition for grades 7–10, students can access content about the three branches of government, the Constitution, the First Amendment, the role of political parties and the U.S. Supreme Court.
