Supporting Civics Education with Student Activism

High school and college students are prominent in mass movements in this country and around the world for racial justice, in response to an impending climate catastrophe, and in campaigns against gun violence. Dr. Singer and Ms. Hinson discuss how secondary school teachers can support and promote student activism as part of a civics curriculum preparing young people for active citizenship in a democratic society.

Presented by Hofstra University professor Alan J. Singer, Department of Teaching, Learning and Technology, recent graduate Imani Hinson, Class of 2020 from the Center for Civic Engagement, and social studies teacher and Hofstra adjunct professor Dr. Pablo Muriel.
