Resources & Websites to Help You Teach Impeachment
posted by: Melissa | January 20, 2020, 09:36 PM   

Beginning Tuesday, the impeachment trial of President Trump will be in full swing in the Senate. This is a highly delicate time in our nation and also one of those rare instances when we can see civics in action. For both of these reasons, it’s important that teachers grab this history-in-the-making teachable moment.


Impeachment can also be cumbersome and difficult to manage. Each day will bring with it new issues and arguments. Students may well walk into class having heard rumors or false information of what has been said during the trial. For these reasons and more, teachers are going to need every tool in the shed when it comes to this issue throughout the next few weeks. Below are a few websites that we think will assist you:


AP News: An unbiased source for news on what is occurring in the trial.

Politifact: The fact-checking website can help students weed out misleading statements.

CSPAN: Will have both live coverage and post clips from the Senate.

Teaching About Controversial Issues: This resource guide will help develop the skills you need when holding difficult conversations in the classroom.
