Join in a deliberative forum, where participants are set in post-war Pittsburgh and asked to deliberate on a series of choices to determine how the modern city should be shaped, weighing the benefits and trade-offs of each choice. This historic example is designed to illuminate the process of civic deliberation, connecting history and civic practice. Primary sources from the Allegheny Conference on Community Development will set the scene, and teachers will be provided with information and resources on how to utilize the deliberative forum process in their classrooms.
