NOW is the ideal time to ACT to activate this exciting citizenship-education activity in your local area high school.


Much of the material in our monthly - September thru May of each school year National public-policy resource theme-packets is foundational in nature. This material will be used by classroom teachers year after year as a standard feature of their citizenship-education curriculum. Because this material is not time sensitive, teachers can plug it into the curriculum stream at any time during the school year - at the teachers' discretion. Some of the material has a strong "current events" component; hence, it's more time sensitive and will be used at once upon receipt from our office. However, because we deal only with "big" national public-policy issues, even these packets are useful to classroom teachers on an ongoing basis. This is because they form the core of teacher-preparation resource files, which the teachers will update with additional, current, related information as it becomes available. This will insure that the theme-packets have the maximum educational impact possible. The "bottom line" is this - participation in this exciting program can begin at anytime during the school year, and all nine (9) theme-packets for the current school year will be sent to the schools no matter when during the school year the school's participation is activated. Our January theme-packet will begin our intensive, comprehensive, and balanced coverage of the entire process leading up to the November 2012 elections. This coverage will continue right through the November 2012 elections Presidential, Congressional, and State-level contests.

Please keep in mind that many of the students exposed to this material will be eligible to vote in 2012. Now is the ideal time to implement this program in your local area school(s). Please let us hear from you soon.
