The Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum
presents a teacher workshop on:
Deliberative Democracy

PDF Registration Form

Like other states, Texas has begun to change requirements and recognize the importance of "Citizenship Education." These changes recognize the growing national need for our young people to learn how to come together to work through difficult issues in passionate, yet civil ways and provide direction for public policy.

During this workshop, participants will receive curriculum and activities which apply the theory and practices of public deliberation to their classrooms, volunteer groups, committees, and other places where students and/or adults work together. Using these tools, you will be able to help students learn to listen, understand and respect other points of view, critically evaluate arguments, and become responsible citizens in their school and community.
