National Issues Forums (NIF) is a nonpartisan, nationwide network of locally sponsored forums for citizens to discuss what to do about important issues. When you use NIF in your classroom, you're giving your students the opportunity to actively participate in democratic practice. Students will learn to deliberate important social issues in a nonpartisan, non-confrontational way. They will learn to understand different points of view and reach conclusions, or directions for action, that benefit their communities.

NIF provides a cost-effective way to meet national standards in social studies and language arts and, teach students how to be active citizens -- and to have fun while they're doing it. Find out more at http://goo.gl/tDi2rI.
