Fostering Civil Discourse, Part 1

Mon, Jan 22, 2018 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EST

There has been much conversation about the need to foster civil discourse: in our government, in our media and in our classrooms and communities. As we consider ongoing issues related to race, justice, and policing, educators are rightly concerned about the lessons that today’s middle and high school students might be absorbing. 

In this first webinar of a two-part series, we will model strategies designed to help you navigate these challenging times and support your students to develop effective skills for civic participation: 

  • Create a reflective classroom 
  • Develop a classroom contract 
  • Provide opportunities for student reflection 
  • Establish a safe space for sensitive topics
