Description

Civics Education in Contentious Times: Working with Teachers to Create Locally-Specific Curricula in a Post-Truth World is a longitudinal research study that focuses on the collaboration between a researcher and elementary teachers to design and implement locally-specific civics curriculum in a predominately Latinx-serving Title I school. William Toledo details how the design team wrote and taught this curricular unit in the midst of contentious socio-political contexts and how themes from these greater contexts entered classrooms, along with proposing conceptual frameworks for teaching civic perspective-taking in these instances.
