BEYOND DIVISIVENESS: Teaching Students to Respectfully Discuss Critical Social Issues

History & Social Studies

In an era of social polarization and political gridlock we need to offer students the skills to respectfully tackle critical, contemporary issues. Finding common ground instead of differences forms the foundations of citizenship based on equality and shared sense of belonging. Our text, Teaching Social Studies in an Era of Divisiveness: The Challenge of Discussing Social Issues in a Non-Partisan Way, grapples with conflicting views of unresolved social issues—such as gun control, marriage equality, the Black Lives Matter movement, and immigration. Secondary social studies and language arts educators taking this course will be encouraged to engage their students in issue research, dialogue, and the opportunity to examine a subject from varying points of view. This course is 6-12 teachers.
Text on Amazon is approximately $26 new.
