Join the National Archives for Civic Learning Week!
Students will explore the First Amendment freedoms from the Bill of Rights in this interactive and engaging civics program based on historical primary sources from the National Archives. Students will learn about the importance of First Amendment rights, identify examples in photographs and short written documents, and discover how to exercise those freedoms.
After registering, you will receive the Zoom connection information via email the week of the event. Participants’ cameras and microphones will be off, and participant comments will be shared only with presenters to ensure a student-friendly environment. Registration will close 24 hours before each event.
This program is a part of Civics for All of US, the national civic education initiative from the National Archives. Our interactive distance learning programs draw upon the vast holdings of the National Archives to promote the knowledge, skills, and dispositions students need for civic engagement in the 21st century. Each program is led by one of our educators located at National Archives sites, the Center for Legislative Archives, and Presidential Libraries across the country. Check civics.archives.gov for more information, including how to request a program for groups of 10 or more students.
