How Civil supports teachers

Limited time, competing viewpoints, and a lack of curated resources make it difficult to explore modern topics with students. Civil's news coverage and ready-to-use materials enable teachers to:

  • Start class with the news your students are talking about
  • Discuss polarizing issues with confidence
  • Reduce prep time with pre-made lessons that keep up with current events

How Civil supports students

We believe schools are the perfect environment to exchange views about important issues in our complex and biased world. Civil's mission is to promote:

  • Critical thinking about media bias and partisanship
  • Tolerance and empathy towards different ideas
  • Students who are passionate and informed on modern topics

Political narratives for every issue

Social media bubbles prevent us from hearing other opinions. Civil's original narratives inspired by media sources from the Right and Left make it easy to understand what both sides are saying.

Historical context for modern topics

Set the stage for an informed discussion with your students. Modules include an overview of the history and policies that shaped important issues today.
