During the OC Civic Learning Institute, school teams of educators will broaden their understanding of the knowledge, skills, and dispositions students need to become civic-ready. 

  • Participants will learn how to support classroom relationships and social awareness.

  • Participants will synthesize structures to encourage academic conversations and speaking skills.

  • Participants will develop a civic engagement project for their classroom or school.

By the end of the series, school teams will be prepared for California Democracy School status, Civic Learning Awards, and the State Seal of Civic Engagement, including pathways for elementary and middle school students.

Participants who attend the series and share their Civic Learning Project plan will receive the book, A Civically Engaged Classroom, and an OC Civic Learning Certificate.​
