Media literacy, the levers of power, and interdisciplinarity are all central factors to making history not just useful but usable for students. It’s a tall order, but we’ve got just the people to get us thinking about this in a useful and usable way.
Our moderator for this Live Discussion was Tammy Waller. She is the Director of State Programs at iCivics – an amazing program that was designed by retired Supreme Court justice Sandra Day O’Conner in 2009. Tammy has previously served as the Director of K-12 Social Studies and World Languages at the Arizona Department of Education.
John Arthur and Tara Lyn Bartlett both joined Tammy for this live discussion. John and Tara also shared ideas for Taking Informed Action in recorded track talk videos.
