Identify one activity from the Preparing Students for College, Career and CITIZENSHIP guide for your grade level that you could implement in your classroom to develop both literacy and civic learning.

In sixth grade, we study Ancient Civilizations. I can have my students read a few of the tables of the 12 Tables of Roman Law to determine the key ideas and central purpose of each law. Then they can draw inferences about Roman law, society, and politics from the document. This would also help me address the CA History-Social Science Standard 6.7.3-5 related to teaching about Ancient Rome for grade 6.
