  • 1.     Civic Building Blocks   Help students to use what they know and what they see locally to learn about and better understand structures, policies and issues  in other regions, countries and periods in history.  Use repeatedly for different topics and issues or as a warm up. This tool is fluid,  and can be used for discussion, essential questions, research, etc.  GenerationNation will continue to build ‐ suggestions welcome!  Infrastructure that makes up any community. Schools, roads, laws, businesses, sewer systems, etc.  Voices, structures and decisions are the people and the processes that influence issues, policies and decisions.  Civic impacts are the outcomes that impact the community – sometimes they are in the cycle of voices and decisions.    Example ‐ Public Education  Use local or current examples to help students think about, analyze, and learn about other areas and periods in history    Local: Who educates K‐12 students in Charlotte‐Mecklenburg? Who makes the laws about the schools? Who decides what is  taught and how schools are funded? Who influences these decisions, and how does it impact the community?  State/national: How is public education structured in other cities and towns in the state? In other states? What is the same,  and what is different? Why?  Global: Do governments in other countries provide education to children and youth? Is it legally mandated? How is it  funded? Who makes the decisions? What is similar to, or different than, how it is done here?  History: How were children educated in (another period in history)? What was different then? What was similar? Why?     Use a template, and repeat with new topics and concepts    Pick a building block  Name a relevant issue  Who has a voice? (or, who doesn’t have a voice and why?)  Who makes decisions?  What are the civic impacts? Short‐term? Long‐term?  How does this relate to what we are learning? (a country, a period in history, a concept, etc.)    Access educational resources and tools about local government and more at www.generationnation.org/learn
