A ton of museums and nonprofit organizations tried last year to inaugurate a tradition they are calling “Civic Season”:
a three-week period that stretches from Flag Day on June 14 through the Fourth of July, and includes Juneteenth and Pride Month… The project aims to ask Americans, and young people in particular, to stretch the usual bounds of the red-white-and-blue festivities to include a new mission of reflection and civic engagement.
Last year, I said I was a bit skeptical of it catching on, especially since that’s the end of the school year.
And, I continue to be skeptical.
However, they continue to have a website chockful of related activities, many of which can be used at other times of the year.
I’m adding this info to The Best Websites For Learning About Civic Participation & Citizenship.
