Join Joseph Kahne for a conversation with fellow educators about his recent article, “Educating for Democracy in a Partisan Age: Confronting the Challenges of Motivated Reasoning and Misinformation,” co-authored by Benjamin Bowyer. Guests will discuss the study that informs the article, which investigated youth judgments of truth claims tied to controversial political issues, and media literacy strategies educators can use to improve judgments of accuracy. They are joined by the co-founders of Marginal Syllabus, Remi Kalir and Joe Dillon, for a discussion of the text, which is the featured article this month for Writing Our Civic Futures, which explores a range of scholarship on civic engagement and supports their web annotation at Educator Innovator.
