Donna Kiel - Civics Education
Professor Donna Kiel, the Director of the Office of Innovative Professional Learning at DePaul University, spoke at length about several programs aimed at improving civics education in the state's classrooms. Specifically, she spoke about a Citizen U curriculum as well as CARES (creating authentic responses and engaged learning in a remote situation) and RISE (reflection, inquiry, self-awareness, and empathy). Dr. Kiel also discussed the impact of going to remote learning after March 2020 due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
