Join Steven Zemelman, author of From Inquiry to Action: Civic Engagement with Project-Based Learning in All Content Areas, for a conversation about how educators can support youth to become, not only college and career ready, but citizen ready as well. Guests will discuss practical steps for preparing students for civic engagement via research, argument, speaking and listening, engaged reading, writing for real audiences and purposes, and collaboration. Zemelman is joined by educators Mauricio Pineda, Elizabeth Robbins, and Heather Van Benthuysen and 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.
