Children Discovering Justice is a K-5 standards-based civics curriculum developed by Discovering Justice to support and enhance social studies, literacy, and SEL instruction. Students explore topics including community, rules, leadership, and equity while answering the essential question, what is justice and how do I use my voice to advocate for it? The Massachusetts Civic Education Law passed in 2018 calls for comprehensive civics learning for Grades K-12, yet because of competing priorities, civics for elementary students has been a challenge. CDJ is created by teachers, for teachers, offering flexible and engaging modules based on real-time needs of educators in the field.
The K-2 curriculum is currently being piloted in classrooms in Springfield and Boston and has received overwhelmingly positive feedback.
