Join the League of Women Voters of St. Paul (LWVSP) for a lively discussion of civic at our upcoming program, “Civics in Our Schools: What’s Going On?”, a free public program on Tuesday, February 23, from 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm (CT). The program will focus on civics education in St. Paul Public Schools, including a discussion of the following topics:
- What does a civics education look like in St. Paul Public Schools?
- How do current events, state education standards, and legislation affect classrooms?
- How can, and does, civics education help develop future voters?
- How will the current revision process for civics education at the state level (part of the Minnesota K-12 Academic Standards for Social Studies) impact the curriculum?
The discussion will be held with a panel of educators, experts, and students, including:
- Rebecca Biel, Social Studies Supervisor K-12, Office of Teaching and Learning
- Eric Erickson, Social Studies Teacher, Como Park High School
- Jaeden Sims, St. Paul Public School Student
In the interest of public health and safety, this will be a virtual event. The event will be available via Zoom and also will be shown on LWVSP’s Facebook page.
