Description:
This Tuesday, October 6, please join the Center for Civic Education and iCivics for a special pre-election webinar titled Bending Toward Justice? Teaching Voting Rights and Representation with iCivics + We the People.

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. Mike 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 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. Please share this with anyone you think might be interested!
