We the People: Adult Learners’ Critical Democratic Literacy

Name We the People: Adult Learners’ Critical Democratic Literacy
Start 5/23/2024 13:00:00

Critical Democratic Literacy (CDL) plays a pivotal role in empowering students to become engaged and informed citizens, enabling them to challenge influential institutions, question unfair policies, and critically evaluate outdated traditions. Individuals equipped with CDL understand political and civic systems, allowing them to navigate these systems effectively and contribute meaningfully to the improvement of their communities. CALPRO has developed a new Community of Practice on developing adult learners' CDL, and it is designed to support educators in amplifying student voices and managing contemporary challenges. Join this webinar to find out more on the topic and hear from adult education practitioners who have implemented participatory approaches to democratic engagement in their classrooms and programs.

Presenter: Mariann Fedele-McLeod (CALPRO/ American Institute for Research), Cindi Grovhoug (Castro Valley Adult and Career Education), Gail Eisen (Santa Barbara City College), Marina Kravtsova (San Mateo Adult & Career Education), and Stacie Annear (Castro Valley Adult and Career Education)
