12th Grade Government Workshop - Local Government and Civic Engagement
Calling Government teachers, especially those in Yolo County, to explore our new draft curricular resources designed to help you bring local government, community organizations, and projects to encourage students to explore issues of local interest into your 12th grade government course. The Yolo County Youth Civics Initiative (YCYCI) led by the History Project, in partnership with Baylor University, Yolo County Accessor, Clerk/Recorder, and Elections; Yolo County Office of Education, and a trustee of Davis Joint Unified School District, have come together to draft these curricular resources to help fill a gap in informing students of how local government work and community organizations work to provide opportunities for students to make change in their local communities on issues they care about. The curriculum resources support projects aligned to the State Seal of Civic Engagement.
At this three-day summer workshop, August 1-3, 2022, we will model the draft resources and ask for teachers' input in helping to improve them.
Attend all three days, provide feedback for the curricular resources, and receive a $750 stipend.
Priority registration open to ALL Yolo County 12th-Grade Government Teachers (including those at alternative schools and YCOE schools). Acceptance of teachers from outside the county, will be determined if space is available.
