Designing Learning for Civic Engagement and Civil Discourse
In this resource you will find a PDF Discussion Guide, in addition to video excerpts from the webinar. Each video is accompanied by discussion questions that will enable teachers to consider their own feelings and those of their students, and then create lessons that address current events with greater confidence.
The opening video is an introduction that lays the groundwork for further discussion and should be watched by all. You can then choose from among the three following modules, opting to use just one for greater focus or introducing all three. No excerpt is longer than ten minutes, and the discussion questions in the Guide can be used as you see fit. Ultimately, the goal is to facilitate discussion that helps educators grapple with their own feelings about government so that they can then design learning experiences that help their students explore their relationship with government, democracy, and each other.
