Join this webinar to learn about causes and consequences of political polarization in our society, why schools must address the challenge head-on, bridge-building in the classroom, media literacy, and social emotional learning as tools for depolarization and partnering with parents across the divide. Gain the inspiration to lead colleagues through a rich discussion of education in an era of political polarization. This webinar will appeal especially to those who are considering using the book, Learning to Depolarize, as a shared text for their school community. Participants will receive access to the free discussion guide that accompanies the book.
