California Civic Learning Partnership Programs in Butte County

The members of the CCLP of Butte County focused on developing four distinct programs that would incorporate and interact with the six proven practices in civic education. It is the CCLP’s belief that each of the six proven practices are represented within the four programs. These practices are: classroom instruction in government, history, law and economics; service learning projects tied to the curriculum; simulations of democratic processes; extracurricular activities that have a strong civic dimension; student participation in school governance, and discussions of current events and controversial topics.
