How Can Kids Become Engaged Citizens in this Age of Turmoil?
12:30pm - 2:00pm EDT
The heart of democracy beats in every citizen, including, and especially, in children.
This interactive event is the start of an inquiry: How do we nurture that civic spirit and critical thinking in all individuals K-12 in our schools?
Starting with a lively ‘Tonight Show’ format DK Holland of Inquiring Minds and her four guests will ‘set the stage’: DeNora Getachew, executive director of Generation Citizen NY Jacqueline Simmons, senior lecturer curriculum/teaching at Teachers College Dr. Elizabeth Waters, neuroscientist/teaching coach/partner of Inquiring Minds Joe Rogers, Director of Public Engagement at the Center for Education Equity/Teachers College
Each participant will add their unique point of view so we understand the big challenge: How can education help develop kids to become lifelong citizens? After a brief introduction you’ll be asked to contribute your own reflections in small group discussions which will include networking and lead to ‘next steps’. Please bring handouts to share if appropriate.
