Critical statistical thinking and a sustainable knowledge in civic statistics is inevitably to become a concerned citizen. This kind of thinking and knowledge can already be enhanced in secondary school. For the implementation of civic statistics in mathematics classrooms in secondary school, teachers themselves have to be well educated in the field of civic statistics. For this purpose, we have designed and realized a university course about civic statistics in the winter term 2016/2017 at the University of Paderborn, where preservice teachers worked on projects and activities in regard to civic statistical contexts. For instance, they have analyzed official open data of the German Statistical Office on the German gender pay gap with digital tools, explored the distribution of net assets in German households and investigated the unemployment situation in different countries in the European Union via Google Public data files. In this paper, we will present some activities and derive first implications for re-designing these activities.
