This research proposes a measure for the civic values of those with the strongest impact on civic education— policymakers and the teachers whose ideologies daily shape their students’ education.
What does civic participation look like in the 21st century? How can we empower students to solve problems and advance democracy? Participants explore Law and Justice, an inquiry-based curriculum.
Participants will explore a digital platform for the exchange of resources, teacher-derived activities, and expert historical content to elaborate on the ideals of self-government and individual rights for classroom use
In the United States, the number of students who wear the hijab (religious headscarf) is increasing. The poster presentation will explore religious pluralism and civil rights in public schools.
A Moroccan secondary teacher who recently spent five months in the U.S. shares his knowledge/experiences with democracy in both countries and converses with the audience based on their comments/questions.

Teaching students that the rule of law is the foundation for all democratic ideals will ensure an engaged citizenry that values equity, social justice and opportunity for all people.
