PARTICIPATING IN A CONNECTED WORLD:
EXPLORING CIVIC ISSUES, DISCOVERING CIVIC INTERESTS

conversation starter:

what does being politically active mean to you?

This conversation starter invites students to listen to a KQED/Youth Radio commentary and to read a short article before discussing how the definitions of civics and politics are changing in the current moment.     >

Ask your students to...

 

  • Consider the questions: Do teens today identify with political parties? Are they redefining political action? What does being politically active mean to you?

 

 

  • Create their own response and, if they feel comfortable tweeting, share their tweet.
