Arguing the CRWP Way: Establishing a Classroom Climate for Inquiry and Generosity

Join members of the College-Ready Writers Program (CRWP) leadership team for a discussion of how CRWP materials and principles encourage students to treat opposing views with respect and generosity. Students who write from CRWP materials start with an inquiry stance towards an issue and revisit their opinion in light of multiple, often opposing points of view. Such experiences for students are designed to create a classroom culture that values civil discourse and supports students in becoming effective participants in civic communities.
This hangout was produced in support of Letters to the Next President 2.0, a project engaging youth in civic participation in issues and topic that matter to them in the US Presidential Election. It was also co-streamed at connectedlearning.tv.
