Integrating the Humanities Across Civics Education in Wyoming

A two-year project to create an online repository of civics education resources for Wyoming teachers.

This proposal addresses the NEH area of interest, “A More Perfect Union,” by bringing to bear the intellectual resources of the University of Wyoming, our state’s community colleges, and Wyoming K-12 educators in a partnership to build an online repository of humanities resources for the purpose of supporting and growing the humanities in civics education and establishing a new civics learning community across all levels of education in our state. This will be achieved through deliberate partnership with humanities professionals to address: 1) core areas of need for new humanities content in the Wallop K-12 social studies catalog and 2) deploying a new online resource catalog rich in humanities content and tied to Wyoming's curricular content and performance standards for English and Language Arts. The K-12 Curriculum Project will focus on the 3 C's of civics education: 1) Civic Knowledge and Skills, Civic Values and Dispositions, and Civic Behaviors.
