The release of Preventing Polarization coincides with recent studies about students and politics. 52% of students choose to remain silent about their political views, with many of them fearing ridicule from their peers or academic repercussions for sharing their opinions. Many of these students don’t know how to have constructive conversations about differing viewpoints, and this has been exacerbated by the deep political divide in the United States.
In Preventing Polarization, authors and veteran teachers Michelle Blanchet and Brian Deters draw on their experiences in the classroom to share novel strategies on how to help teachers approach civics in the classroom and help their students overcome learning barriers that may arise from differing political opinions.
The step-by-step blueprints outlined in Preventing Polarization include classroom activities and role-playing as ways to build empathy in students. The book also offers readers solutions on how to address difficult conversations and topics. By empowering their students to voice their opinions, get involved, and examine information objectively, teachers will be able to help them cultivate powerful critical thinking skills and engage in productive political dialog without conflict.
Preventing Polarization is one of the many resources that Times 10 Publications offers busy teachers. The book is part of a series of publications that provide practical, easy-to-apply strategies to modernize teaching.

The chapters are organized such that teachers can easily turn to the section that is relevant to them at any given moment, and there they will be met with practical strategies that can be immediately applied in their classrooms.”
