iCivics in central Texas (video)
May 31, 2012
(April 30, 2012) iCivics and Justice O'Connor were back in Texas once again, this time to see the iCivics curriculum in action in Waco, Texas. Baylor University has worked closely with Waco and Midway Independent School Districts to bring iCivics to students throughout Waco. Justice O'Connor, Baylor's student volunteers, teachers, and most importantly the middle school students had a great time.
Researchers at Baylor University also gave a preview of results of a study on the effectiveness of iCivics in classrooms. While we weren't surprised, we were extremely pleased that it showed iCivics boosts civic learning and knowledge among kids from fifth grade to seniors in high school. Watch this video to learn more:
