Bending Toward Justice? Teaching Voting Rights and Representation with iCivics + We the People
Several times in speeches, Martin Luther King Jr. repeated a quote by Theodore Parker: “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice.” The struggle for voting rights has had a long and troubled history in the United States. In this free webinar from iCivics and the Center for Civic Education, to be held October 6, teachers will hear from Mike Fassold, an educator from Fishers Junior High School in Indiana, as he explains how he teaches the expansion of suffrage using the We the People middle school curriculum on voting rights. Fassold will be followed by scholar Henry Chambers, the Austin E. Owen Research Scholar & Professor of Law at the University of Richmond, who will discuss the 2020 Census, apportionment, and gerrymandering. Finally, Emma Humphries from iCivics will explore compelling new infographics and Web activities on the census, gerrymandering, and voting that will engage your students in these topics. The webinar will be held on October 6 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern. It is designed especially for teachers of upper elementary, middle, and high school students, but is open to everyone. A recording will be made available afterward. Duration: 1.5 hours

Oct 6, 2020 07:30 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
