The writers of this blog post offer a framework for a research project on civics education, asking that students consider the subject's importance and survey civics knowledge among their peers. The project has students working in small groups to complete one of five tasks, including developing a quiz for assessing student knowledge, reviewing curricula at their school and elsewhere, and developing arguments supporting a robust civics education. Students then make a presentation to school administrators on how to improve civics learning at their school.
