A series of elementary and secondary school learning activities which correlate to citizenship education goals of the Maryland State Board of Education are presented. The five goals are to understand individual and group responsibilities in a democracy, know the functions of law and support a system of justice, value individual, societal, and constitutional rights, understand governmental processes at all levels, and understand local, state, national, and world affairs. Activities include inviting guest speakers, campaigning for class officers, researching and reporting on various topics, conducting a model legislature, collecting newspaper articles about the President, debating about presidential appointments, and listing political issues of concern to students. Each lesson lists the goal, competency, grade level, suggested activities, suggested evaluation methods, and extended activities. Special education considerations are also discussed. (KC)
