Project Citizen students around the country have been busy this school year finding public policy solutions to community problems ranging from plastic bags clogging our oceans to smoking in public parks. Exemplary portfolios are being evaluated this summer at the Project Citizen National Showcase in Calabasas, California.
Project Citizen is aligned with the Common Core State Standards for Literacy in History/Social Studies. These draft correlations were performed by the Maryland State Department of Education. The correlations are available for download here.
