Civics and government studies the relationship between a nation and its citizens. In the U.S., citizens have rights to speak freely, practice their desired religion, and numerous other rights that are guaranteed in the Bill of Rights of the Constitution. We also have responsibilities—to vote, to be educated about candidates and issues, and to volunteer our time, to name a few. We are also citizens of the world, of Earth, and we are Earth’s stewards. As global citizens, we must also educate ourselves to do what is right to continue living on a healthy and prosperous planet. In other words, we must teach students to care about their world. This week, we take a look at citizenship in its many forms. Encourage your students, regardless of the subject area in which you teach, to focus on being better citizens in the world.
