With offices in Calabasas, California and Washington, D.C, the Center for Civic Education is "dedicated to promoting an enlightened and responsible citizenry committed to democratic principles." The Center functions as a nonprofit, non partisan educational corporation and the materials offered on their site for educators and those wishing to brush up on everything from representative democracy to the Constitution will be pleased to wander around the site. While the Center does publish some commercial textbooks and the like, visitors will find a number of free educational materials in the "Resources" area that are worth considering. Here, visitors can download lesson plans, view an extensive set of related external links, as well as additional resources on civic education. The site is rounded out with a nice "Multimedia" area, complete with podcasts on civics and videos that examine civil rights.
