Teaching about elections is one of the best opportunities to prepare young people for political engagement. This conference helps educators teach about electoral politics in a way that is engaging, respectful to all points of view, and supported by the best and most current information.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The Teaching About the 2022 Elections Conference is an exciting opportunity for K-12 teachers and administrators to:

- Access resources that support instruction and enhance student learning

Politics can be divisive, confusing, and challenging to approach. This conference will help educators find ways to ensure their students can discuss these sensitive and important topics with care, knowledge, and facts.
