In today’s world, questions of how to best build and maintain democratic societies that are pluralistic, open, and resilient to violence are more relevant than ever.

  • Engage with classroom-ready multimedia resources and learn how to build a customized unit to meet curriculum objectives
  • Discover new teaching strategies that help students interrogate text, think critically, and discuss controversial issues respectfully
