Project Citizen Curriculum

The South Carolina Bar (LRE) Law Related Education Division provides We the People: Project Citizen training for teachers and other school representatives. Attendees receive a teacher's guide and 30 copies of the student text at no charge! There is no registration fee for trainings. The curriculum, which is correlated to South Carolina standards, takes students through a six step process that is displayed in a class portfolio as a final project and includes information on:

  • identifying a public policy problem in the community;
  • gathering and evaluating information on the problem;
  • examining and evaluating solutions;
  • developing a proposed public policy;
  • creating an action plan; and
  • reflection of the project.
