Red, White and Who? Politics & Government in the Modern Classroom

from 70.00

Course description: As educators, it is a core responsibility that students are provided the resources to engage in civil and thoughtful political discussions in and outside of the classroom. Our current high school, middle schools, and elementary students will be shaping our nation’s future in a very direct and significant way. It is a moral imperative that our future voters are not only taught how to be civically engaged but to also have respectful discussions in an increasingly polarized world. The purpose of this course is to identify the unique problems facing educators in navigating politics in the classroom. Participants in this class will reflect on our nation’s current political climate and the foundations that support our political system. This includes reflections on our nation’s elections, political parties, and contemporary media landscape. At the conclusion of the course, participants will develop an implementation plan to increase civic engagement from students and ensure that politically charged discussions are handled in an appropriate manner.
