Good Cop, Bad Cop - Alisa Harvey

Can a person be a hero and a villain? What’s the hidden story? How can we help our students embrace complexity and gain understanding? In this video, a teacher uses her own family history to explore police brutality, institutional racism, and the power of narrative.

  • This talk pairs so well with the idea of the danger of a single story. I love the idea that history is a verb, not a noun, because we must teach our students to DO history. Alisa’s message to students that “story” is the foundation of “history” is a powerful reminder to continue to question whose voice isn’t being heard.
