Abstract

Over the coming year, this column will explore the question, “What does it mean to prepare students for civic engagement?” To begin this inquiry, Chris Hass shares how one third-grade student’s epiphany, that literacy is meant to help us stand up for ourselves, inspired his class to spend a year exploring how they could use their reading, writing, and speaking to transform their world for the better.
