WASHINGTON, Oct. 1, 2020
President Christopher R. Riano Celebrates Our National Elections with a Special Edition of Our Signature Daily Program
WASHINGTON, Oct. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Center for Civic Education has launched a nationwide initiative to focus its signature daily program, "60-Second Civics," on the right to vote in the weeks leading up to the November 3 national elections. Each day, 60-Second Civics will feature a podcast focused on elections, voting, representation, and how those rights are protected under the Constitution.
"At the Center for Civic Education, we believe it is critical to ensure that all people have access to civics lessons that speak to our moment and bring to life constitutional principles like the power of voting," said President Christopher R. Riano. "The ballot box is the cornerstone of our democracy, and I encourage every American to exercise our most fundamental right this year."
60-Second Civics is a daily podcast that provides a quick and convenient way for listeners to learn about our nation's government, the Constitution, and our history. The podcast explores themes related to civics and government, the constitutional issues behind the headlines, and the people and ideas that formed our nation's history.
Each 60-Second Civics podcast episode will be accompanied by a Daily Civics Quiz, which teachers can use with the podcast as a warmup activity at the start of their history, government, or social studies classes. The podcast will also include an audiogram, which is a captioned video animation of each episode. You can find the entire 60-Second Civics playlist on YouTube.
