The Civic Renewal through Education for Agency, Tolerance, and Engagement (CREATE) is an innovative approach to instruction, student learning and professional development in civics, that integrates American history, geography, government, and media literacy.

In cooperation with Muncie Community Schools (MCS), Ball State developed CREATE as an innovative approach to instruction, student learning, and professional development in civics that will integrate American history, geography, government, and media literacy.

CREATE seeks to cultivate a community of educators, administrators, and those with similar concerns, and will provide opportunities through a series of monthly workshops designed to equip educators with curricular resources, pedagogical strategies, and relational tools to help teachers guide inclusive, respectful discussions about fundamental civics and historical subjects—both in and outside the classroom.
