In preparation for the David Mathews Center’s 2018 professional development series for educators, sponsored by the Alabama Bicentennial Commission, we have been expanding and revamping our free resources available to teachers. Included in our expanded resources offering is the corresponding handbook to this year’s workshop series: Place-Based, Deliberative Learning in the Classroom.

The handbook is intended to offer educators a quick introduction on how to implement deliberation in their classroom and the ways which deliberation can enrich students’ understanding of their community’s history and their investment in their community’s future. The handbook also overviews the resources for deliberative, civic, and place-based education that are available free of charge to educators nationwide.  If you are interested in registering for one of the upcoming Place-Based, Deliberative Learning in the Classroom workshops, dates and registration information can be found on our Eventbrite page and in our comprehensive blog.
