In a time of multiple and overlapping crises—the COVID-19 pandemic, a national reckoning on race and injustice, political polarization, and threats to voting rights and access—how will you teach about the November election? Join Facing History and Ourselves to explore approaches to teaching the election that focus on the history of voting, the health of democracy, the factors that shape our civic decision-making, and the power of youth agency and voice. We'll feature strategies to foster civil and democratic discourse in your classrooms and share teaching ideas that build media literacy, civic engagement and connections between curriculum and students’ everyday lives.
