Teaching Idea to Model Civil Discourse

Prior to the 2018 midterm elections, Facing History and Ourselves created a teaching idea that offers approaches to addressing the results of the midterms with students, no matter what the outcome. By giving students time to pause and reflect, process and think critically, teachers can model civil discourse and support their students’ civic development. Teachers will find helpful resources to introduce in the classroom after the election: The Daily from The New York Times is a 20-minute podcast that discusses an important news story each day; Allsides covers a range of news events by sharing articles from publications on the right, left, and center of the political spectrum, allowing students to see how the same election results are viewed from a range of perspectives; and Today’s Front Pages from the Newseum curates each day’s front pages from newspapers around the country and the world.
