As we celebrate the relaunch of the Florida Joint Center for Citizenship website (seriously; we had balloons), I want to make sure that you are aware of brand new civics lessons that we have posted on the site. These lessons, which we are calling ‘Civics in a Snap’, are 15-20 minutes long and are aligned with both the Florida Standards (what used to be Common Core) and with the elementary civics benchmarks. You can check out the lessons here, once you have registered. While they are designed for Florida, we welcome those from other states to adapt them as you like to fit your standards!

Civics in a Snap! For when you have just enough time to help your kids learn about being good citizens!

I also want to thank the folks in Miami-Dade for the work that they did on the lessons. The whole process was wonderful, and the fact that these are 100% teacher created is simply exciting.

We owe a great deal of gratitude to Miami-Dade Social Studies Supervisor Robert Brazofsky and the following teachers:

Susan Boundy
Elizabeth Chang Warren
Ashley Clinch
Nora Espinosa
Marie Garcia
Angelica Hernandez
Bienicka Jean-Mary
Olga Marrero
Dr. Mercy MacDowell

Susan Rodriguez
Christina Romero
