We inspire thoughtful conversations and authentic community engagement.
Our experience working with thousands of diverse public, private, and charter schools allows us to understand and draw upon a wide range of approaches to civic and community engagement specific to the culture and values of each school. We aim to spark rich, productive, and inspiring conversations among administrators, faculty, students, families, community partners, and other stakeholders.
Examples of our curriculum consulting work include:
As a government teacher, it’s nice to have more resources…
for teaching media literacy and having students critically think about the information they receive.
Close Up brought me CLOSER to politics…
the entire notion no longer seemed obscure. I became very involved in politics on the local and national level.
I plan to introduce Close Up’s professional development to the teachers I work with…
and use this as a part of my school’s requirement that students take action on issues of local, national, and international importance.
Close Up is a positive experience for students…
seeing themselves as having the power to influence the democratic process.
