With the new day comes a new Civics in Real Life reading ! Many of our kids, and maybe many of us, are dealing with the reality of family members who have lost jobs over the past couple of months. So today's CRL looks at this question: What is the origin and purpose of unemployment insurance?
As a reminder, our topics so far have addressed
The Defense Production Act
The First Amendment
Propaganda and Symbolism
The National Guard
The CARES Act
Federalism in Action
The Preamble in Action
the Common Good,
and Public Health and the Social Contract.
We hope that you will find these useful. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact us at anytime! And don’t forget, you can find the ‘Civics in Real Life’ resource on the Florida Joint Center for Citizenship website here. Be sure also to check out Civics360 for videos and readings that explore additional civics concepts and ideas within a more traditional framework!
