"The History We Carry" - Current Events, Historical Insights

"The History We Carry" pushes educators to reframe the way we approach and think about the context of both history and "current" events. Acknowledging the impacts and influence of the larger socio-political context on the role of educators, the aim is to provide educators with tools to cultivate a safe classroom space that maintains perspective and create space to welcome the perspectives of others. Cultivate resources to make historical connections and contemporary meaning, as well as unpack historical and critical thinking, in your social studies classroom.
