Creating an Inclusive Civic and History Education for All, Educating for American Democracy Webinar

March 25 @ 4:00 pm 5:00 pm EDT

Educating young people to take active, constructive roles in our democracy is important for all learners. It is particularly so for young people with learning and attention issues and other disabilities who often find themselves marginalized in decisions that affect them. This is why the Learning Disabilities Association of America (LDA) and Emerging America are proud partners of the Educating for American Democracy (EAD) initiative, an important new movement to reprioritize the importance of history and civics learning within K-12 education.

Come learn about this initiative, the changes it represents for all learners, the ways it can be leveraged to develop student self-advocacy and self-determination, and how you can join this ground-breaking effort. The event will be moderated by LDA Executive Director, Cindy Cipoletti and feature the following panelists:

Ace Parsi, formerly Director of Innovation at the National Center for Learning Disabilities and presently the outreach and dissemination lead for the EAD initiative;

Kimberly Eckert, 2018 Louisiana Teacher of the Year

Rich Cairn, Director of Emerging America
