Constructive Dialogue and Elections: An Educator Guide to Engaging Students

November 1, 2022

This guideĀ provides high school educators with strategies and activities to teach and talk about elections through a constructive dialogue framework. Before the new wave of political and cultural divides, elections once presented fun and engaging learning opportunities for educators and students alike. We developed this resource to support educators and, hopefully, reduce concerns about discussing topics that can often present strong and differing opinions.The tips, practices, and supplemental resources in this guide will allow students to practice skills that support life-long learning, and think critically about themselves, others, and their place within our U.S. democracy.
