Fostering Civil Discourse
This guide includes highlighted sections on how to use this while "Teaching Remotely."
From the introduction: "Engaging in civil discourse means bringing your mind, heart, and conscience to reflective conversations on topics that matter, in ways that allow you to extend your understanding in dialogue with others. It does not mean prioritizing politeness or comfort over getting to the heart of the matter."
