In this interactive 2023 Share My Lesson Virtual Conference session, participants will learn the deliberative process, will engage in a model deliberation about memorials to local history, and will receive resources to implement deliberations in their classrooms and communities. Participants will consider how local and community issues, such as access to housing, green spaces, and clean water, can be used to foster discourse, perspective taking, mutual respect and reciprocity. Participants will also explore the value of reflection in the deliberative process and will consider ways to connect local concerns to broader democratic issues and themes.
