For Classroom Teachers

Discovering Justice In-School Programs provide the curriculum, resources, and guides necessary for teachers to expand civic education opportunities into their classrooms. With curricula designed to support and enhance instruction, our programs focus on Massachusetts civic practice standards and provide students with the foundational knowledge, skills, dispositions, and language needed to be engaged, critical, compassionate, and active leaders of our democracy. Students explore topics of fairness, community, equity, and other themes of democracy and justice, while answering the essential question: What is justice and how do I use my voice to advocate for it?
