Civics push (in Jefferson County)

The CJ reports here on a new freshman civics course. To whet your appetite:
"Students are engaged in a social studies class in a way I have never seen them engaged before," said Seth Pollitt, who has taught high school social studies for three years at Iroquois.

Superintendent Sheldon Berman, who pushed for the new class, calls it "the single best piece of curriculum that I know of because of its impact on students and its level of sophistication."
