Civics Teachers’ Institute – Plainest Demands of Justice

This two-day colloquium will explore a discussion of race and equality by rooting the conversation in natural rights and the Declaration of Independence. This dialogue-based program will draw from the Bill of Rights Institute’s newest curriculum resource, The Plainest Demands of Justice: Documents for Dialogue on the African American Experience. Participants will engage in dialogue and discuss the Black experience using the primary sources and dialogues within the resource. Participants will also model and explore the pedagogical approach of Socratic practice, with a focus on practical applications for their classrooms.
