Civic Learning Week: Republicans and Democrats

March 12

Event Navigation

From Monday, March 11, through Friday, March 15, the Will Rogers Memorial Museum will launch a series of engaging lessons for educators as part of Civic Learning Week. The online lesson series is designed to summarize good citizenship and to teach students how to be informed members of society through material featuring journalist, comedian, and political commentator Will Rogers.

Each lesson includes a short video about Will Rogers and his influence on politics with accompanying discussion questions. The five lessons—one for each day—ask thought-provoking questions such as, “How can we disagree and still be friends?” and “How hard do you think it would be to be president?” Public and private educators can access this lesson series free of charge during Civic Learning Week and beyond. The estimated time investment is 10 minutes per day.

Will Rogers bridged political gaps because he managed friendships with the country’s two main political parties in his lifetime, often poking fun at both sides of the aisle. As a nod to his fame and political influence, Will Rogers is the only humorist with a statue in the US Capitol.

The Civic Learning Week lessons are available at willrogers.com/civics.
