Teacher as Citizen: A Conversation with Joel Westheimer

  • Joel Westheimer

    What does it mean to be a citizen of the United States in the 21st century?

    Now is the time for a critical look at civic engagement. "Teacher as Citizen" challenges the civic education movement to go beyond the textbook and explore educator understandings, practices and dispositions about citizenship in our current landscape.

    Joel Westheimer will lead this vital discussion with preservice teachers, staff, faculty and education practitioners.

    This is a "learning-by-doing” event; audience interaction is key. After you register you will be invited, in a separate email, to help create an online interactive story map for the event.

    Any educator who has an interest in civic education and wants to give students the tools they need to critically explore what citizenship means to them will enjoy this conversation.

    Seating is limited. RSVP today.

    Westheimer is also presenting a master class on “The Teacher as Citizen” on Wednesday, April 25. Learn more.
