Join in a forum designed to illuminate the process of civic deliberation, where participants deliberate on a series of choices and trade-offs. After participating in a forum and learning about how to frame deliberative options, educators will use the History Center’s core exhibition, Pittsburgh: A Tradition of Innovation, to draft their own deliberative framework. Teachers will be provided with information and resources on how to utilize the deliberative forum process in their classrooms.
