Preparing Staff to Facilitate Class Discussions of Politics, Identity, and Current Events

This event is organized by Lindsay Lyons.

Civics projects are opportunities for students to take action in pursuit of justice. Issues that matter to students and our larger society involve politics, identity, and sometimes shocking current events. Students are capable of grappling with these topics, but adult discomfort may be holding students back. This session will help school and district leaders equip teachers with the necessary skills for these conversations using a protocol that teachers can also use with students.

Please note that an additional registration step is required for this event. Please register for this event here to receive the Zoom meeting details.
