The purpose of this guidebook from the National Center for Learning and Civic Engagement (NCLCE) is to serve teachers, administrators, policymakers, and other education leaders who want to put the “Six Proven Practices for Effective Civic Learning,”* in place but are not sure how to begin.

The guide provides ideas for how to promote and utilize these six practices, highlighting research that confirms them as proven strategies for implementing high-quality civic learning, and provides practical suggestions for how to implement each practice in schools and classrooms and how to model state-level policies that support these practices. This guidebook also outlines various programs that align with each practice.
