iCitizen: Civic Literacy for Young Americans


At last, a complete GenJ civics course! Offered as an online course, iCitizen: Civic Literacy for Young Americans will equip your student with the practical and historical knowledge every American needs to be an engaged citizen.
The course highlights the purpose of the Constitution, the structure of America’s government and economic system, the role of American diplomacy, expressions of patriotism, and provides an introduction to American parties and politics. Perfect as a half-credit, stand-alone civics course, iCitizen is also excellent preparation for accelerated middle school students and for freshmen or sophomores planning to take an advanced American government course (such as AP U.S. Government and Politics) during their junior or senior year. See the syllabus below for details or read the first chapter for free below!

Online or Print? While there is not a print edition at this time, the entire text of iCitizen, the syllabus, and the glossary can be printed as PDFs (about 300 single-side pages) should your student prefer to read iCitizen on paper. The quizzes and final exam are the only component that is "online only."
