Searching for Resources on iCivics is Easier Than Ever!
At iCivics, our goal is to make teaching civics easy and engaging. To make sure we were meeting that goal, we collected feedback from educators across the country and identified a number of ways we could improve your experience on our website.
We’ve been busy the past few months enhancing iCivics.org and are excited to announce the following new features!
Want a guided tour of the new features? Join our free virtual info session on Thursday, September 9 at 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. EST. Our website team will walk through what’s new and answer questions! The session will be recorded and provided to those who register.
Find Resources Faster
We have completely redesigned the “teach” page with advanced search features to help you find what you’re looking for quickly. You can now sort and filter our resources by:
- Content type, including Curriculum Unit, Lesson Plans, DBQuests, WebQuests, Games, and Videos
- Grade level with a view for both Middle School and High School
- State standards
- Tools available such as “assessment,” “primary source,” “project-based,” “ELL/MLL”
- Resources, such as Google Slides, Nearpod, Infographics, and Kahoot quizzes
- Technology required to use, such as browser type, device (tablet/PC), etc.
- Time required to complete the lesson
The “teach” page search will also deliver results from our blog, as well as feature professional development opportunities.
