Workshop – Civic Stories: Real Stories of Civic Engagement throughout History
September 27 at 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
Date: Tuesday, September 27, 2023, 4:00-6:00 pm ET
Description: In this workshop participants will explore the DKP’s collection of Civic Stories and consider how they would use and apply those stories throughout their civics instruction. Teachers will be exposed to DKP’s Civic Stories framework and have access to the ways in which we consider and build these stories for inclusion in our curricular materials. We will also introduce participants to a tool to support the kind of thinking students need to do to be able to develop these dispositions, Thinking Routines (from Project Zero at the Harvard Graduate School of Education). Participants will experience one or more thinking routines in practice in the civic education context and share tips for using thinking routines in their classrooms.
