Two years ago, the National Literacy Project began a collaboration with several school districts in Florida and the Literacy Design Collaborative to develop a set of modules that addressed all of the K-6 civics benchmarks within a literacy-rich framework. Although this collection was written with Florida students in mind, the modules can easily be adapted to meet the needs of students in other states. This collection was field-tested during January-May 2017 by 100+ teachers in four Florida districts. These 19 modules are now published and ready for your use!
Attached is a flyer with the entire collection listed with access information. You can access any or all modules at two places: the NLP website (www.nlproject.org/resources/#florida) and the LDC Core Tools website (coretools.ldc.org/curriculumLibrary – then search for the NLP Civics Collection). These modules are open source, you may modify them, post them, share them, or copy them.
The National Literacy Project is a non-profit organization formed in 2002; we work with schools and districts across the country to improve literacy and learning through a literacy action planning process.
