Speak on It: How K-12 Schools Can Cultivate Developmentally Appropriate Civic Discourse around Social Issues for Students

UVA's Educating for Democracy initiative is hosting a FREE conference that will engage educational stakeholders on best practices to build positive, supportive school communities that foster civic discourse and deliberation. We will discuss how, within the current socio-political context, to engage K- 12 students in developmentally appropriate civic discourse around race and justice. The conference will be a learning space on best practices for creating school climate and classroom practices that nurture critical skills for citizens working towards an open and equitable democracy.
