Navigating Narratives: Starting Thoughtful Conversations on Israel-Palestine

March 11 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

EST  | Virtual

In this session, students will engage in a two-part interactive workshop about the Israel-Hamas War. The event will equip students with the tools necessary to have civil and informed conversations about the Israel-Palestine conflict through two breakout room activities: (1) an activity helping students recognize bias and misinformation on social media, and (2) an activity helping students thoughtfully express their viewpoints on the war and listen to the ideas of their peers.

The session will be hosted by the Education Department at the Institute for Youth in Policy (YIP), which develops student-created, non-partisan, and discourse-based civics education resources seeking to combat today’s polarization crisis. The specific activities in this workshop were developed by two high school students of Jewish and Muslim backgrounds who sought to start thoughtful dialogues and build understanding among their peers on this challenging topic. The event will also be supported by fellow CivXNow Coalition member organization Essential Partners, which will be providing the reflection worksheet used in the second activity.
