Election Politics: Strategies for Class Discussion and Debate
Presidential elections highlight not only critical issues facing the nation but also differences of ideology and opinion. And in this particularly divisive election year, emotions are running high. How can one best guide class discussion about the election and its implications? What are some strategies to foster inclusive discourse about the current moment, from understanding political processes and histories to making sense of one's own stances? This workshop will offer examples of some key classroom practices, followed by open discussion of how, potentially, to approach political discussion in your own courses.
