Citizenship education is an inoculant for hate. Integrating compassionate and responsible citizenship into K to 12 learning is a vital investment in a stable democracy of a critical thinking, socially responsible, inclusive citizens.

In 2012, work began in earnest to create a pedagogy of K to 12 citizenship education for Saskatchewan. With the support, input, and oversight of educators, educational stakeholders, and leaders close to home and around the world the Concentus Citizenship Education Resources were made “classroom-ready” in 2017.

Today, the resources and methodology have transitioned from “classroom-ready” to “classroom engaged”. Concentus’ partnerships with school divisions have taken citizenship resources and professional development into the classroom and demonstrated proof of concept for the vision of effective learning of the new “3 R’s”: rights, responsibility, respect.

This session presents insight on this success from each level of involvement including:
· ministerial support for the resource creation
· division administrators of the system wide integration
· educators teaching in the classroom.

For many years Judge David Arnot expressed his belief that as the “Rights Revolution” of the 20th century was created by lawyers in the courtroom, the “Responsibility Revolution” will be created by teachers in the classroom. Two years into practical, in-class take up of the Concentus Citizenship Education Resources, he updates that expression to say: The “Rights Revolution” is being created by teachers in the classroom.
