Are you reluctant to bring up controversial issues in your classroom? Has the recent presidential election heightened your anxiety about how to broach increasingly polarizing political topics? In this participatory session teachers will explore the elements of effective discussion and practice using parliamentary procedure as a method for achieving civil discourse in an age of incivility. Supporting video produced by Wisconsin Eye demonstrates how parliamentary procedure is used in the Wisconsin Legislature, and by students participating in the legislative simulation known as the Legislative Semester. This method could be utilized with students in grades 6-12, and is suited for any discussion of public or controversial issues, especially in government or civics courses.
