Participating in Democracy: Choosing to Make a Difference Study Guide

Participating in Democracy explores the challenges and possibilities of citizenship by highlighting the stories of four young Americans. Their work deepens and expands our understanding of the word citizen and helps us see good citizenship as a creative act - a work of the imagination.

This study guide is divided into two parts. Part One explores the meaning of such terms as community, democracy, and citizenship. Students then expand their understanding of those terms by applying them to the four individuals featured in the video. The second part adds new voices and perspectives to discussions prompted by the four interviews. It also considers some of the moral questions inherent in the choices we make as individuals and as citizens.
