Project Citizen -- Violence in the Schools – Drugs in the Schools
This is only a fifth grade project. The books should rotate among the schools on a yearly basis.
This would eliminate the same agencies being asked to give assistance to multiple schools.
Classes who wish to enter the Project Citizen Competition may do so in any year.

Calendar Suggestions
     To aid the cohesion across grade levels we suggest that the books be taught at as close to
      the same time in all grade levels. This will reinforce the vocabulary and concepts of the
      program if it is being taught all over the school. The order should be Authority,
      Responsibility, Privacy then Justice. Fifth grade then will move onto We the People and
      end the year with a participation series book and Project Citizen.
