Project Citizen, Level 2

Project Citizen is a civic education program for middle, secondary, and post-secondary students and youth or adult groups. Project Citizen promotes competent and responsible participation in state, local, and federal government. It actively engages people in learning how to monitorand influence public policy. Participants work together as a class or extracurricular group to identify and study a public policy issue. The final product is a portfolio that may be presented before other classes, groups, community organizations, or policymakers.

Designed for use by secondary students (grades 9–12) or adults, the newly revised Level 2 text introduces students to the citizen’s role in the public policymaking process. It can also be used with groups of adults who are interested in becoming more effectively involved in community affairs. Each set includes 30 student books and a teacher’s guide.
