Putting Civics In The Middle: Teaching the 2020 Election and Beyond
Description:

Illinois students entering middle school this fall must receive a semester of civics instruction before moving to high school, laying a foundation for students to successfully complete a semester of civics before high school graduation. Join the McCormick Foundation staff and Illinois Civics Instructional Coaches from the region for a two-day workshop designed to build teacher capacity on the practices required in the new law: discussion, service-learning, and simulations. Using the 2020 Election as a teachable moment for civics, attendees will learn strategies for bringing these practices into their classrooms, receive free lesson plans from respected civic education providers, and learn about local resources to supplement civics instruction. Registration is free and attendees will receive a complimentary breakfast and lunch both days. PD hours will be offered to teachers that successfully complete the two-day workshop. Explicit connections will be made to the IL Social Studies Standards, the Common Core State Standards and the Danielson Framework for Effective Teaching.
