Civic Action in the Classroom
Session: 7850
Target audience: K-12 teachers

In this workshop, learn about how to foster civil discourse in the classroom and how to get students civically engaged. How can educators help students grapple with difficult, open-ended questions that ask them how they want to live in a democracy? Learning to listen to and consider others´ perspectives is a vital first step in developing the skills needed to be an active participant in a democratic society.

The morning will be spent with facilitators from Facing History and Ourselves to explore more resources and strategies for building empathy and tolerance, encouraging critical thinking skills, and engaging your students in constructive civil discourse. Then teachers from St. Vrain will be sharing some of their civic action projects they have created and show a variety of resources that you can use in your class. There will be time for collaboration and planning with your colleagues.
