Listening, Leading, and Learning in Community during the 2016 Election

- Professional Learning
How do teachers invite students to both be themselves and become a community in these times? Alan Singer has been sharing suggestions at Huffington Post for teachers during this election season, writing, “Our obligation is not to maintain some abstract form of ‘balance’ in the classroom, but to help students become critical thinkers who learn to listen to others, evaluate their statements carefully and respectfully, and support conclusions with evidence.” Participants in this webinar will explore this assertion further and discuss how this election season can be a time to uncover students’ passions and interests and learn together how to live in community.
