Welcome to the New York State Education Department Civics Education Toolkit


Education in civics is fundamental to ensuring that all students in New York State graduate ready for active and informed citizenship. This toolkit promotes a standards-based, interdisciplinary focus for civics education. It includes a crosswalk that describes the infusion of civics throughout all New York State Learning Standards. It is designed for teachers, curriculum supervisors, and school district administrators with responsibilities for planning a standards-based instructional program that infuses civics education across content areas. It is one of many instructional resources from the NYSED Curriculum, Instruction & Instructional Technology Team.
