Description

Teaching about elections is one of the best opportunities educators have to prepare young people for political engagement. Yet, we know that teachers are often unsure about how to teach about electoral politics in a way that is engaging, respectful to all points of view, and draws upon the best and most current information. 

The Teaching About the 2018 Elections Conference, which runs from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at UW-Madison's Grainger Hall, is an exciting opportunity for K-12 teachers and administrators to: 

  • learn about important election related issues
  • receive training in effective learning strategies
  • be introduced to national civic education programs and their curricula
