Grabbing the Third Rail: Teaching Politics in Secondary Education

Many teachers have become afraid to broach political issues in their classrooms. However, helping students become politically aware is an imperative of effective civic education. This presentation, which is based on the book Teaching Politics in Secondary Education: Engaging with Contentious Issues, will discuss reasons for incorporating politics into the curriculum, as well as offer research-based strategies for doing so.
