Daniel Schugurensky
45:32
What about the tension between patriotism and a sense of belonging to a world community? Would this be considered a design challenge as well?
Douglas Addison - CFFAD
45:49
Q; Was there any discussion of how to bring E4A to busy, polarized adults?
Emily Kavanagh
46:10
Can we relate this to other content areas? I used to teach Social Studies but now I teach Grade 6-8 Special Education Math.
Peter L Levine
46:41
@ Daniel, the Roadmap mainly addressed that question through a theme, on the US in the world. But I do also think it can generate design challenges.
Peter L Levine
48:22
@Emily, yes, I think that is an important aspect of implementing the Roadmap. It’s true that it focuses on two specific disciplines (only two parts of the social studies curriculum). But it needs to connect to other disciplines, including STEM.
Emily Kavanagh
49:12
Thanks Peter
Ace Parsi
49:25
Piggy backing on Peter, we've been also really successfully engaging English and science teachers and their respective associations
Peter L Levine
49:43
@Douglass, we focused on k-12 education (not higher ed or adult education or informal learning in community settings). But those are crucial areas, and it would be interesting to apply the EAD Roadmap to those settings.
Wayde Grinstead (he/him)
50:11
@ Emily, I appreciate how Mary Ellen Daneels (and others) talk about “all classes should be civics classes” in that they promote a student sense of belonging and agency, regardless of content. So how can, say, a math class honor students sense of identity and belonging, as well as their voice within the class?
Ace Parsi
50:35
+1 Wade
Emily Kavanagh
50:49
Absolutely Wayde
Douglas Addison - CFFAD
51:03
Thank you Peter! Would love some guidance on that if you are interested. I'm available at team@CFFAD.org
Douglas Addison - CFFAD
51:28
Same for everyone else interested in the adult side, the more the better!
Sonia Riley
01:00:49
Agreed about teaching students when our parents create the barrier.
Charles White
01:01:09
What strategies do you recommend for schools to reassure that engaged civic learning and activity isn't a threat to traditional community expectations of the schools?
Peter L Levine
01:02:22
@Charlie, I think this is one advantage of a framework over a curriculum. It will (and should) look quite different in different communities.
Charles White
01:02:57
Thanks, Peter.
Peter L Levine
01:02:58
But we are calling for some degree of change, everywhere. For that, we need the kinds of allies Ace is talking about.
Sonia Riley
01:05:23
How do community schools coordinators advocate this work?
Annie Evans
01:06:21
Hi Ace ! We are happy to be champions and support EAD
Philip Brown
01:06:24
The National School Climate Center will be very interested in partnering.

Douglas Addison - CFFAD
01:07:11
Best guesses: how likely is it that we will end up with a bifurcated right-left system of civic education content, depending upon state and county leadership? How much room in the middle is there for E4A?
Amani Thurman
01:07:50
Intersting point^
Wayde Grinstead (he/him)
01:08:19
In seeking a more democratic society and increased civic learning, how does EAD approach the politicization of concepts like racial equity, which should ideally (imo) be implied aspects of humane, democratic approaches, but are dismissed (and recently banned) by folks who fear (and misunderstand) topics like ‘critical race theory”?
Robert Sherman (he him his)
01:08:29
Following Doug Addison’s comment just now: How does this set of strategy/curriculum suggestions move forward in places that say plainly they reject a more authentic history of slavey, the repudiation of a 1619 starting point, which McConnel himself came out against just recently? This would be a large number of places.
Philip Brown
01:09:13
Ace - what is your contact info?
Tara Bartlett
01:09:31
And the emergent state policies outlawing the teaching of such topics.
Peter L Levine
01:09:36
@Douglass, that is a risk, and it would be bad for students. We hope that EAD can combat it. The document is not necessarily centrist or moderate, but rather a consensus statement by people who ranged quite broadly across the spectrum.
Shaelynn Farnsworth, NLP
01:09:40
Thank you all so very much!
Sonia Riley
01:09:44

Good Job to all
Khem Sedhai
01:10:18
It’s really a great event. Big thanks to all the panelists
Karen
01:10:58
Definitely any system of civic education content is susceptible to temptation to exclude certain parts of our shared history...For instance, Texas Lege is considering prohibition of teaching critical rqce theory .
Stephen Buckley
01:11:02
Is there anything like an email-group .. which is almost always more collaborative than "social media" (twitter). --- Stephen Buckley, sbuckley@opengovmetrics.com

Separating big ideas/ideals from policy squabbles.
Tara Bartlett
01:12:50
At least 5 states have now passed laws against teaching CRT or multiplicities in historical narratives.
Peter L Levine
01:13:09
@Robert, efforts to prevent an authentic investigation of slavery in schools would contradict the Roadmap.
Wayde Grinstead (he/him)
01:14:19
Thank you.
Amani Thurman

Wow well said

The issue is more than Dems vs Republicans. It is identity vs policy thats ruinous to the deliberative process. I e worked in or around Congress for the past 20 years. “Democracy” has beena dog whistle to the radical right for a decade. Important to be aware of this story arc collision. Develop ways to deal with it.

Thank you for this - as a future secondary educator who is starting a GTEP program this summer - this is the kind of learning environment I would like to be a part of. Again, thank you
Tara Bartlett
01:19:43
Peter mentioned a multi pronged approach to disseminating the EAD roadmap -how have state legislatures been engaged? We are seeing an uptick in states passing policies that would buck adoptions of the EAD roadmap and teachings in schools.
Peter L Levine
01:20:13
@Tara M, thanks for launching a career in secondary education!

It’s wonderful to hear that there is a National movement to teach civics in our schools. Just to share what the New York League of Women Voters has been doing. We are sponsoring a youth led organization that has contacted many issues based organizations and set up website, www.nyyci.org Check it out
