TEACH Program provides free access to curriculum and educational resources specific to character and service-based learning.
Wreaths Across America (WAA) has announced the addition of new Flag Day lesson plans to its TEACH Program, which provides free access to curriculum and educational resources for all. Flag Day is celebrated June 14 and commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States.
The new lesson plans, which have been designed for all grade levels and learning abilities, have an objective for civic ideals and practices.
“An understanding of civic ideals and practices is critical for full participation in society and is an essential component of education for citizenship,” said Cindy Tatum, WAA curriculum developer and Gold Star Mom. “This theme enables students to learn about the rights and responsibilities of citizens of a democracy, and to appreciate the importance of active citizenship.”
A press release stated, “The WAA TEACH Program helps serve professional and amateur educators by acting as a conduit to share established curriculum materials from like-minded partner organizations. Additionally, WAA develops original curriculums (like the new Flag Day materials) to help educators in their endeavor to provide quality learning experiences for their students.”
