easy and exciting for educators to teach character-education and civic responsibility right alongside required subjects
(PRWEB) September 27, 2011
Liberty Learning Foundation’s Next Great Americans Tour bus is making stops at schools nationwide to help students discover and define their roles in America’s future.
In 30-minute theatrical performances, Lady Liberty takes students on a journey through history and introduces the Super Citizen Program that teachers have been buzzing about since its August release. Students, faculty & community leaders end the show with anthemic sing-alongs and a call for help with the foundation’s mission of placing free Super Citizen kits in every school in the country.
“The tour brings attention to the urgent need for tools that make it easy and exciting for educators to teach character-education and civic responsibility right alongside required subjects,” says foundation founder Patti Yancey.
“We’re here to bridge the gap between under-funded schools and the passionate donors who believe these lessons must be taught … despite school budget cuts.”
The Liberty’s Legacy Super Citizen Program is an annual in-school program that focuses on educating 3rd, 4th and 5th graders in America’s history and heritage while incorporating character-building, financial literacy and career development components that the foundation believes “are fundamental to the success of our youth and country.”
“We know our mission of delivering these program kits free of charge to every school in the country is ambitious. We also realize that we Americans have a history of dreaming big … and succeeding,” says Yancey.
Every tour-stop school receives at least one Super Citizen Program kit from the foundation or local businesses but Yancey explains: “We’re also calling on proud, passionate Americans to keep this amazing enthusiasm going by sponsoring these tools that teach, inspire and empower our Next Great Americans.”
