The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation and The Center for Civic Education proudly co-host these programs as part of Civic Learning Week. These sessions are intended for a broad range of educators and participants are eligible to receive documentation of contact hours for professional development purposes.
How can we employ an inclusive, equitable, culturally-relevant approach to civics that presents and honors diverse perspectives? Let’s consider how teachers can establish classroom environments that build trust, offer intellectual safety, and respect student views and contributions. This session will also cover ways to engage with families. Ultimately, the goal is to help teachers create environments that support successful, collaborative experiences.
As a result of this session, participants will
Learn about civics-based activities that connect the past to the present and lead students to informed action and civic participation.
