Teaching About the 2016 Elections: Preparing Students for Political Engagement

Teaching about elections is one of the best opportunities educators have to prepare young people for political engagement. Yet, we know that teachers are often unsure about how to teach about electoral politics in a way that is engaging, respectful to all points of view, and draws upon the best and most current information.

Description
University of Wisconsin-Madison announces a professional development conference for teachers, Teaching about the 2016 Elections: Preparing Students for Political Engagement.

Teaching about elections is one of the best opportunities educators have to prepare young people for political engagement. Yet, we know that teachers are often unsure about how to teach about electoral politics in a way that is engaging, respectful to all points of view, and draws upon the best and most current information.

The cost is $35 per person though July 31 and $50 after July 31. Registration includes breakfast, lunch and electronic materials and curriculum to use in the classroom.

​Follow these links for more information or to register

The conference will be helpful for K-12 teachers to learn about election-related issues, receive training in effective learning strategies and to be introduced to national civic education programs and their curricula.

Participants may choose sessions that are most relevant to their teaching. Session types are related to pedagogical strategies, issue forums and featured curricula.
