Project Citizen: Students Practice Democratic Principles While Conducting Community Projects
Medina-Jerez, William; Bryant, Carol; Green, Carie
Science Scope, v33 n7 p71-75 Mar 2010
Project Citizen is a program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education's congressionally funded Center for Civic Education, which sponsors both domestic and international programs. The Center for Civic Education's Civitas International Programs pair U.S. states with countries around the world based on a variety of factors; including geographic similarities. In 2005, Wyoming and Bolivia were paired with one another as the Wyoming-Bolivia Partnership. Since then, both partners have shared cultural exchanges centered on the civic education program. The project described in this article allowed the social studies and science teachers to partner in light of the content being addressed (civic engagement and environmental issues). (Contains 3 figures and 1 online resource.)
