For Faculty and Staff
Civic engagement and service can be incorporated into any curriculum. Connecting students to the greater community and their government is part of our mission, and we’re here to help you include it into your lesson or group plans.
If you are interested in incorporating something related to civics into your classroom curriculum or club or group meetings, we would look forward to collaborating with you in the following ways:
- Mini-grant funds are available. Consider applying for a CCES Civics Action Grant from our office. Rolling application deadline: Apply Here
- Field Trips by interest or area of study (ie. Moakley Courthouse, EMK Institute for the Senate)
- Classroom service trips (ie. World Languages class trips to Post 440 Food Bank)
- Classroom curriculum including lessons and modules in civics as it relates to the subject matter you are teaching. (ie. Biology research and civic engagement, civics and Sustainability, the US Constitution, history of voting in the U.S., etc.)
- Speakers for your class to support an area of study (ie. Gov. Michael Dukakis, Congressman Joe Kennedy, David Hogg)
- Watch for CCES events and attend with your class, or encourage your students to attend and participate.
- Watch the NNHS Discussions teacher folder for CCES Info Sheets on current events and topics in civics.
- Would like to collaborate but not sure how? Let’s talk!
