(4:00 Registration) Exploring and Experiencing Deliberation: The U.S.
Role in the World at Roosevelt High School, Seattle. Is respectful
and rigorous public deliberation possible in an age of talk-show
tantrums and self-indulgent political posturing? Are citizens capable of
civil discourse, and if so, what can teachers do to promote it? The
World Affairs Council and Washington State Capitol Forum invite you to a
forum that grapples with these questions. A keynote address will be
given by University of Washington professor Dr. Walter Parker,
who is well-known for his work in social studies curriculum. Cost of $20
includes 3 clock hours, refreshments, and resources from
www.choices.edu. For more
