Free K-6 Civics Standards Modules from the National Literacy Project

Two years ago, the National Literacy Project began a collaboration with several school districts in Florida and the Literacy Design Collaborative to develop a set of modules that addressed all of the K-6 civics benchmarks within a literacy-rich framework. Although this collection was written with Florida students in mind, the modules can easily be adapted to meet the needs of students in other states. This collection was field-tested during January-May 2017 by 100+ teachers in four Florida districts. These 19 modules are now published and ready for your use!

You can access any or all modules at two places: the NLP website and the LDC Core Tools website (search for the NLP Civics Collection). These modules are open source, and you may modify them, post them, share them, or copy them. 

The National Literacy Project is a non-profit organization formed in 2002; we work with schools and districts across the country to improve literacy and learning through a literacy action planning process.  Email Dr. Judith Irvin at if you have questions or would like to discuss how to use the modules.
