We find ourselves in the midst of a heated election season, with much at stake on the ballot. As we think about how the outcome may affect our communities and world, we are reminded of the profound importance of our mission. As you plan your teaching in the coming weeks, you may wish to use class time, office hours, or other forums to create a space for students to process their reactions to current events, as well as to connect your discipline with relevant issues.
We have designed these resources to help faculty and graduate student instructors think about how to approach the events of November, given your own goals and your particular course and discipline. We offer questions and ideas to consider in your planning, as well as advice from faculty colleagues. Through our teaching and scholarship, we can work collectively with our students to chart productive paths forward.
