Politics in Pedagogy
This course is designed to engage us in political discourse in the classroom. We will read articles that will help us examine our role in handling current events in the school environment. We will discuss strategies for dealing with co-workers who want to talk politics non-stop as well as the best way to handle inquisitive students. Some articles we read will be from both the right and left of the political spectrum to give us balance. We will tackle important issues that overlap with the educational system including Colin Kaepernick and the recent photo of high school students giving a nazi salute. This course is great for middle and high school educators who have an interest in politics and are looking to discuss and explore how those interests affect us in the workplace.
