Resources for American Democracy

March 11 @ 4:30 pm - March 14 @ 5:15 pm

EST  | Virtual

The Committee of Seventy is proud to be a champion of Civic Learning Week 2024, an important national effort to prioritize civic education to sustain and strengthen our constitutional democracy. The Committee of Seventy is a nonpartisan, nonprofit working toward strengthening elections, government and civic education in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania. As part of that mission, the Committee of Seventy serves as the lead organizer of PA Civics, a state ambassador for Civic Learning Week 2024.

To celebrate Civic Learning Week, the Committee of Seventy is hosting a series of professional learning webinars for teachers and administrators about our free resources for American democracy:

Monday, March 11th at 4:30pm, Can We Talk?: Learn how to introduce high school and college students to the skills and habits that promote productive dialogue across differences with Can We Talk? co-director Chris Satullo.

Wednesday, March 13th at 4:30pm, Democracy for Kids: Join us for a panel discussion about our Democracy for Kids program for grades K-8, featuring C70 Lead Educator Anne Spector.

Thursday, March 14th at 4:30pm, Experiential Civics: This webinar will be focused on C70’s experiential civics resources for the middle and high school level. We are excited to be joined by special guest Philadelphia Councilmember at Large Rue Landau, who will share her experience being interviewed by students as part of Studio C70. Also joining us to discuss how they use our resources will be two Philly civics teachers, Tom Quinn, Education and Policy Director at PA Youth Vote, and Nathan Salamone, a member of the National Constitution Center’s Teacher Advisory Council.
