Earn Civics Education Micro-credentials with BSU! 

The BSU College of Continuing Studies and the College of Education and Health Sciences are excited to offer enhanced curriculum and supporting resources for K-12 educators to be better prepared to engage their students in civics education through earning micro-credentials focused on civic learning! The new digital credentials are designed to help teachers to increase their own civics learning in order for their students to achieve the civics education learning targets in the revised curriculum frameworks.  

Earning these micro-credentials will help teachers plan for engaging students in civics through:

> Experiencing the democratic process in Massachusetts cities and towns

> Exploring historical and current contexts related to civics learning 

> Planning for action civics projects and activities 

> Developing a classroom environment fostering civic engagement through student empowerment and action to test ideas and engage with local government and community organizations.
