‘Innovation in Civic Education’ is Aug. 10

Starting early to learn civic knowledge, mindsets, and skills is important to lifelong civic and political participation.

Educators around the state have brought new ideas to their classrooms that build students’ civic readiness and have connected them to a range of civic learning opportunities. Join us from noon to 1 pm CDT on Tuesday, Aug. 10, on Zoom for a discussion about innovation in civic education in Nebraska. Register here to receive the Zoom link for the event.

This virtual gathering is the latest in our Civic Health Index Series, following the release of our 2020 Nebraska Civic Health Index. Conducted every five years, the Index gathers and analyzes key indicators of Nebraskans’ social connectedness, community engagement, political involvement, and faith in institutions.

In 2021, the data and insights in the 2020 Index have served as a starting point for conversation and collective action toward strengthening civic life and democratic involvement across Nebraska. Among those actions are innovative engagement strategies and educational opportunities like the ones that will be discussed by our Aug. 10 guest panel:

›› Ebony McKiver, social studies education specialist, Nebraska Department of Education

›› Lori Broady, teaching and learning team specialist, ESU 4

›› Lacey Glasford, instructor, Nebraska City High School

“Starting early to learn civic knowledge, mindsets, and skills is important to lifelong civic and political participation,” said Daniel Bennett, Civic Nebraska’s rural civic health program manager, who will moderate the discussion. “Nebraska educators and communities can partner to provide learning opportunities to make civic learning come to life.”
