The second topic, covered in the second 1.5 hour session, is Dialogue, Disagreement and Controversy in Multicultural K-12 Classrooms. Here participants will engage with research-based techiniques for grappling with controversial political and social issues, as well as more everyday forms of disagreement and dialogue in the classroom.
