A (Interrupted) Narrative - Frank White

This talk centers around the concept of narrative in the process of teaching history. It suggests encouraging students to think of themselves as narratives being played out in a historical process. In the process, the speaker discusses the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ways it has interrupted our educational narratives. He explores the power that narrative can introduce in producing empathy in the classroom and in our culture, as well as his own anxiety as we prepare for the unknown narrative awaiting us in the educational field this historic year.
