Can we talk about politics? A workshop for educators about how to talk in your community as a community about the upcoming 2020 presidential election (remember how it went in 2016?), the pandemic (which has become not just political but partisan) and other political issues that are vital for you to engage, personally and professionally. Blink is offering this workshop in June and August 2020, with two different grade level foci: for grades 7-12 and K-6. More information here . To register, please click on the date for which you’d like to sign up: 6/16/20 or 8/4/20 (for grades 7-12) or 6/18/20 or 8/6/20 (for grades K-6).
