But how, exactly, do teachers pursue this—especially given other pressing priorities, like ensuring academic proficiency and addressing social-emotional learning? Students Taking Action Together (STAT), a research project developed at Rutgers University, provides an answer: five research-based instructional strategies teachers can use to help students rehearse and develop civic impulses and dispositions.
