- Resource Type:
- Professional Learning
The Teaching for Democracy Alliance is made up of organizations working together to equip teachers and administrators to talk about elections & voting in a productive way, and to provide students with long-term civic engagement tools. They are creating opportunities for teachers to learn about existing election and voting materials, as well as related professional development. Above all, they are helping teachers develop a strong collective voice for democratic learning that will help them overcome the partisan noise and equip them to bring practical democracy lessons to their students. In this Teaching for Democracy Alliance webinar, educators weigh in on the challenges and rewards of teaching controversial topics and offer strategies for addressing them in the classroom.
