The current political season has injected an unprecedented amount of uncivil language and behavior to the national discussion. No matter who wins the presidential election, the tone is unlikely to change anytime soon.
How do you encourage students to discuss such shocking incivility in a civil way? This week, we sit down with Steve Hunt, director of the School of Communication, to discuss strategies for exploring these important topics in class while avoiding hostility and ill will. We also explore how these discussions might impact your end-of-semester student feedback.
