Civics & Gov

by Misty Weatherford

Are you teaching civics or government this year? There are so many topics to explore within these two subjects. I am a 6th year middle and high school teacher, and my favorite topics that I ever taught were civics/economics! I think my draw to them is that a lot of people find them boring, but I love to bring in different ways to learn then the standard lecture.

Debates, WebQuests, Creative writing (my kids are obsessed with this poem/rap creation activity), Primary source analysis, and of course close reading. Reading comprehension is so key!

Here is a link to all of my civics curriculum

Do you have questions about any of my lessons or how to teach any upcoming topics? Please send me a message on my socials or here, I would love to help! Have a great day teach! – Misty
