Monticello High School Citizen Action Project
|This school article is a stub. You can help cvillepedia by expanding it.|
All seniors at Monticello High School work on a project known as a Citizen Action Project or CAP Project. A part of the school’s U.S. Government curriculum, the projects are intended to help the students become experts on a public policy issue in the community. It emphasizes teamwork and face-to-face meetings with experts in the community. The project culminates in a citizen action activity where they share their findings and make policy recommendations (e.g. public forums; speaking before public bodies).
During the 2010-2011 school year, students are being exposed to cvillepedia as a publishing platform to share their research on local public policy issues.
Articles demonstrating the students' work include:
- Albemarle County Economic Vitality Action Plan
- Charlottesville-Albemarle Historic Preservation
- Charlottesville City Market
MHS faculty advising CAP students
- Jim Huneycutt
- Hannah Bailey
- Emily Dooley
