Description

We are living in a time of incredible divisiveness, and it seems that we are not well equipped to work with conflict at school. How we talk about things is incredibly important. Through engaging in challenging and brave conversations, students gain critical thinking skills, empathy and connection, and a sense of civic responsibility.

In this workshop, teachers will learn skills that support civil discourse in classrooms and will gain the confidence to lead this work that is critical to our democracy. 

Audience and Grade Level

Administrators, Teachers, Specialists; Grades 7-12

Credits

18 PDPs will be awarded to participants upon completion of this training.
