What is Democracy?

Students explore the facets of democracy. For this civic responsibility lesson, students create a definition of democracy and discuss the difference between a spectator and a participatory citizen. Students 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.
