Introducing the Mikva Action Civics Network

Mikva Challenge’s new online teacher platform, the Mikva Action Civics Network, is now live! The Network serves to connect action civics educators with one another, provide easy access to curricula from Mikva Challenge and veteran teachers, and offer examples of amazing youth voice projects and initiatives across the country.

Key features of the Mikva Action Civics Network include:

  • Lesson-by-lesson access to Mikva Challenge curricula
  • New lessons from Mikva Challenge on a monthly basis
  • Case studies of exemplar action civics projects from around the country
  • Opportunities to sign up for professional development courses from Mikva Challenge

This site is an effort to crowdsource all this great work to push the field forward. Mikva has created the space and is guiding the process, but the teachers bring the magic. We invite educators to visit the Network to access resources, and we encourage teachers to share their knowledge and expertise as well.
