FLREA staff have served on the Next Generation Sunshine Standards Development Committee as well as the End of Course Assessment Committee for the new middle school civics course. Additionally staff have assisted districts in developing their pacing guides and course outlines. Each institute is designed to provide specified training in civic education methodologies, targeted content areas, free Internet-based resources, and corresponding benchmarks. FLREA has developed a Meeting the Benchmarks guide for teachers providing quality civic education lessons aligned to the new benchmarks.
