Many teachers shy away from teaching civics because of the controversial nature of certain topics and the challenge of navigating those conversations in class.   But if school is not a place to share divergent viewpoints, where will students learn the skill of engaging in civic discourse?  This session will offer strategies for teachers as they embark on civic dialogue as well as address the trauma that students bring to our classrooms that sometimes surfaces in Soapbox speeches and discussion and how to effectively address it and support students.
