We will be adding more lessons this month and will be including 6th grade lessons on Ancient China in early summer 2016.

The Civic Learning Award celebrates public schools' efforts to engage students in civic learning. The award program also identifies models that can be replicated in other schools. Co-sponsored by Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye and California State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson, award winners are announced in February.
The Civic Learning Award program has three levels: Awards of Excellence, Distinction, and Merit Winners will be selected by a panel of experts based on the depth and breadth of their civic learning classes, clubs, and programs. Award of Excellence winners will receive a personal visit from Chief Justice Tani G. Cantil-Sakauye; Award of Distinction winners will be visited by an appellate court justice; and superior court judicial officers will provide recognition to schools receiving the Award of Merit. In addition, each winner in the top two categories will receive a plaque and be invited to a California Gold Ribbon Award banquet hosted by the California Department of Education.
