Civics students tell how they made a difference (Video)




Students from more than a dozen high schools gathered recently at Windows on the River to talk about how they made a difference this school year.

They were part of Civics 2.0, a new program in which students not only learned about civics and the importance of having a voice when it comes to politics and other civic matters, they also took action.

 During this learning demonstration, the students shared projects they had completed, including the following.

Gayle Gadison, the District's Curriculum and Instruction Manager for Social Studies, says this year was a success and plans to offer Civics 2.0 to eighth graders next school year.
