Curriculum  <  >
Content in this section has been adapted from the Foundations of Democracy curriculum, developed and administered by the Center for Civic Education. Content for the We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution program and the Project Citizen program will be provided as this site develops.

The cultural connections suggested in this resource have been developed to enhance the original Foundations of Democracy curriculum. It is hoped that these connections will bring a more complete and culturally unique understanding of the concepts that compose this series: authority, responsibility, privacy, and justice. Whenever possible, cultural connections were made in each lesson to include Native American cultural perspective through the use of legends. These adaptations are most specific to the Woodland Tribes located in the Great Lakes region.

The content is organized according to academic level, concept, and unit and lesson structure. The three academic levels in the Foundations of Democracy series are elementary, middle, and high school, and can be accessed through the links below or the tabbed menu above.
