This material presents a Roadmap to Educating for American Democracy— guidance and an inquiry framework that states, local school districts, and educators in U.S. to transform teaching of history and civics to meet the needs of a diverse 21st century K-12 student body. It also recommends approaches to learning that do five critical things as follow: 

  • inspire students to want to become involved in their constitutional democracy
  • tell a full narrative of America’s plural yet shared story
  • explore the need for compromise to make constitutional democracy work
  • cultivate civic honesty and patriotism that leaves space both to love and to critique this country
  • teach history and civics both through a timeline of events and the themes that run through those events.
