Citizenship

  • citizenship icon "Between new technologies, multiplying media, and layers of intercontinental connection, global citizenship education is a 'must have' and not a 'nice to have' - for everyone" said Heather Beasley Doyle's piece How to Thrive in the 21st Century (2016) quoting Havard Graduate School of Education lecturer Connie K. Chung.  Simply put, being informed as a citizen is about knowing others, their culture, their perspectives and then valuing those in determining actions, advocating for solutions and making judgments.

    K-2 instruction around citizenship is built into the Washington Kindergarten Inventory of Developing Skills (WaKIDS) alignment.
