James Madison Legacy Project Expansion

Empowering high-need students for informed, thoughtful, and productive citizenship. 

The James Madison Legacy Project Expansion (JMLPE) seeks to improve professional development and instruction in the Center for Civic Education’s We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution curricular program. The program draws upon the expertise of teachers and educational consultants to develop new resources for We the People professional development and instruction that foster positive civics and social and emotional learning (SEL) outcomes among English learners, students with disabilities, and students of color. CERL is conducting the evaluation research on the JMLPE.
