John Broome Featured Speaker in Civic Seminar Hosted by Tufts

John P. Broome, assistant professor in curriculum & instruction in the College of Education, was the featured speaker in an online seminar hosted by The Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE) based at the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service at Tufts University.  The five-week seminar was created to discuss CIRCLE’s new report “All Together Now: Collaboration and Innovation for Youth Engagement.” Broome’s talk focused on the importance of developing ‘classroom climate’ in K-12 schools to foster student free expression and discussion of controversial issues.

CIRCLE conducts research on civic education in schools, colleges, and community settings and on young Americans’ voting and political participation, service, activism, media use, and other forms of civic engagement. It is based at the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service at Tufts University (Source: www.civicyouth.org)
