In community with other educators and expert non-profit partners, explore how community dialogue can be applied to civic issues in multidisciplinary classroom settings. In six half-day sessions with one-on-one coaching and support, you’ll develop a dialogue-based lesson plan for use in your classroom, learn how to create conditions for productive and community-building dialogue, practice your facilitation skills and learn strategies and ideas for dialogue as a pathway to civic engagement. Who should apply?
In the spirit of dialogic practice, the Civic Conversations project team is committed to cultivating an inclusive and empowering learning community where all people are welcomed and able to succeed. We seek and welcome applications from candidates of varying backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences. The application is open to current educators teaching grades 6-12, who anticipate teaching grades 6-12 during the 2021-2022 school year. Go here to learn more and apply. The deadline is April 23. This program is offered by the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate.
