Overview

Students develop their personal understanding of their membership in a civic community by examining  the historic contribution of young people in shaping positive changes in America using primary sources from the Library of Congress and other sources. Students explore coalition-building accomplishments of young people recognizing that any individual, regardless of age, race, status, or gender has the potential to help bring about changes through working together. Students then identify characteristics of collaboration and creating coalitions in order to build their understanding of civic community.
