A Republic…IF We Can Keep It: Civil Discourse in the Classroom
Are you equipped to engage in discourse around relevant topics of the day, even those that some consider contentious? Combining research-based best practices and years of classroom and supervisor experience, the CUBED approach from the book “Civil Discourse: Classroom Conversations for Stronger Communities” is a “how-to” guide that supports civil discourse and student engagement in the classroom. Educators need to start planning for conversations before the first student enters their classroom in the fall and work to align these conversations to themes, skills, and standards throughout the year to prepare for the most challenging topics students will face. Join us to consider what this looks like in your classroom and community!
