Hosting a Local Civics Project Showcase

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This event is organized by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) and Generation Citizen.

This session will explore how Massachusetts schools and districts can host their own local civics project showcases. Often structured as “science fairs for civics,” the goal of these showcases is to celebrate student-led civics projects and to provide opportunities for students to share their work with an authentic audience. During this session, two teacher-leaders will share examples of school-wide and city-wide showcases they planned and hosted, covering topics both logistical and pedagogical! Attendees will leave the session with concrete resources for how to host their own civics project showcase events.

Please note that an additional registration step is required for this event. Please register for this event here to receive the Zoom meeting details.
