This sounds like a rather dull subject but a high claim. Isn't it deadly boring for children? Absolutely not. The children at Santa Catarina are very focused and wide awake while they become acquainted with their new subject of "Civics". To learn about this subject, the children come together after their regular classes for a period of six weeks. And they participate with enthusiasm whether each of them fills in a worksheet, small groups answer questions, or all of them have discussions in a plenary session.
