All teachers are civics teachers. We all send messages to students around, power, justice, and equity with the norms we employ, the curriculum we curate, and the way we engage student’s voices in addressing essential questions across the curriculum. Should teachers disclose their opinions to students? Engage in a Structured Academic Controversy with colleagues to make an informed choice for your classroom and experience best practices in facilitating student to student deliberations in remote, hybrid, or traditional classrooms. Appropriate for grades 6-12.
By attending this session, attendees will be able to make an informed choice, based on research around teacher disclosure on current and societal issues. Participants will engage in a structured academic controversy that can be iterated in remote, hybrid, and traditional classrooms to promote student deliberation.
