What is Democracy?

Young scholars explore the facets of democracy. In this civic responsibility lesson, students create a definition of democracy and discuss the difference between a spectator and a participatory citizen. Young scholars discuss whose responsibility it is to improve government and protect the rights of the people. Students work in groups to learn about civil society, civic responsibility, patriotism, advocacy and right to petition the government. They then present these ideas to the class.
