AllSides for Schools

A joint partnership between Living Room Conversations and AllSides

AllSides for Schools has a new website! Check it out!

Preparing students to participate thoughtfully in democracy - and in life.

How can teachers engage in current events and controversial topics without causing serious divisions in the classroom or being charged with bias? How can teachers prepare students with the skills and knowledge they need to navigate modern media, social networks, and their in-person relationships?

AllSides for Schools helps educators have these discussions and teach essential skills in critical thinking, collaboration, listening and respectful discourse, media and digital literacy and social-emotional learning. Our unique focus on building relationships and revealing multiple viewpoints across the political spectrum avoids the potential problems with bias and disrespecting individual beliefs.
