Bigger Than Me: Raising Civic-Minded Kids
Mark your calendar! Join me next Tuesday, September 20 at 7:00 p.m. EST on Twitter to discuss the timely and critical issue of how we can raise civic-minded kids! This is not just about helping kids learn about government. It’s about how they will develop compassion for others and responsibly contribute to their community, city, state, country and world. I’ll share research, simple practices for parents, tools, resources and real-life examples along with Civics Teacher, Mary Ellen Daneels. Go to #ToolkitTalk to participate in this important conversation.
