Florida Civic Literacy Exam (FCLE)

Being an engaged citizen takes knowledge and practice. Civic literacy requires an understanding of the basic principles and practices of American democracy, the U.S. Constitution, founding documents, and knowledge of landmark Supreme Court cases, legislation, and executive actions. Through content and opportunities to deliberate, collaborate, and develop civic relationships, high school, and postsecondary students can learn what they need to “keep the Republic.” Use this collection of resources to enhance students’ civic knowledge and skills as well as prepare them for success on the state exam.
