RU Ready Civics Fair
Mission: A civic engagement initiative, the mission of RU Ready and this Civics Fair Toolkit is to provide students with the motivation and the civic, political, and expressive tools they need to address public problems in their community.
Purpose: The RU Ready Digital Civics Fair Toolkit is intended to help educators and students host their own Civics Fairs while meeting New Jersey educational standards. Thank you to the New Jersey State Bar Foundation for their partnership on this effort.
RU Ready, Evidence-Based Approach: RU Ready is rooted in research. This research encourages us to reach out to young people and focus our efforts on fostering well-rounded and active citizens. Additionally, the emphasis on “active citizenship” is reflected in the New Jersey Core Curricular Content Standards (Standard 6.3), underscoring the importance of offering instruction targeting civics education.
