From Reflection to Action: A Choosing to Participate Toolkit

Students develop and strengthen their “civic participation muscles”—a combination of civic skills, knowledge, and dispositions—throughout the course of their time in school, both inside and outside the classroom. From Reflection to Action: A Choosing to Participate Toolkit provides a flexible model of reflection and action that can range from one class period at the end of a Facing History unit to a semester-long elective or independent civic action project.

The toolkit provides a flexible collection of classroom resources, as well as project examples and sample assignments.
