Preparing Students for Civic Life: Facing History’s Approach to Civic Education (Regional Workshop 3 of 3

This workshop explores how Facing History’s research-based interdisciplinary approach to teaching civics aligns with the guiding principles, content and practice standards of the 2018 MA History and Social Science Curriculum Frameworks. Designed to support teachers of 8th grade and high school US history, world history, and media literacy, the workshop will model how to incorporate diverse perspectives; encourage informed and respectful discussions about prejudice, racism, and bigotry in the past and present; and provide opportunities for students to develop their voice and civic agency as they reflect on how they want to make a positive change in their schools, communities, and the broader world. Schools are encouraged to send teacher teams.

This is the third of three regional civics workshops in the fall of 2019.
