Teaching Debate and Media Literacy in a Polarized Political Climate

In this hangout, participants asked what impact the current political climate, often characterized by its divisiveness, has on teaching debate and media literacy. Educators and experts in the field discussed why supporting students to have critical conversations while remaining open to others’ points of view is so important in this atmosphere. Guests also discussed how students can develop and hone habits of inquiry in the age of the 24-hour news cycle and reporting on violence and national tragedy.
