EGSO’s Anti-racist Pedagogy Working Group: Handling Post-Election Fallout

10/20/2020 - 1:00pm

The 2016 election was traumatic for many students, leaving instructors handling classroom tensions and student emotions for which they received no formal training. This election cycle has raised similar emotions, intensified by a higher degree of anxiety as Election Day approaches. This workshop will discuss pedagogical practices for both short term and long term post-election ramifications. In the short term, instructors need to manage student anxiety, emotional responses to the election, and maintain a safe classroom environment, while protecting their own mental health. In the long-term, curriculum on media literacy, political engagement, and social justice offer substantive ways to respond to the current political climate.
