Is Knowledge Power? - Jeremy Murray and Aaron Murray

Two brothers share their experiences teaching and learning history with young citizens. They teach in high school, college, and prison classrooms, and they encourage their students to abandon the “names-and-dates” and “one-thing-after-another” way of thinking about history. They try to guide a student-led exploration of history, trusting in students’ independent spirit of inquiry and encouraging them to find their voices through dynamic, extended classroom activities. The title and opening premise are inspired by the work of historian, Naomi Oreskes.
