Featured Session: For the World to Come: Exploding How We Do Civics in Schools

Mar 6, 2024

2:30pm – 3:30pm CT

Rather than simply preparing students to navigate the precarious democracy of today, civics can support students to build futures worthy of their creativity, ingenuity, and passion. But this can only occur if we explode traditional approaches to civic education that is bound to a narrow range of subjects, grades, and knowledge. We offer a model of world-building civic education that positions every teacher as a civic teacher, insists upon ideological commitments to equity and justice, and provides strategies for fostering empathy, inquiry, and social imagination in every classroom.
