S1E6 - It’s All About The Teacher
We continue our look at how to address the problem of the decreasing amount of time American schools are devoting to the teaching of American history, civics and social studies. Using the 2018 Brown Center Report on American Education, we look at our nation’s Social Studies teachers and their demographics. Finally, we go over some suggestions for future sampler lessons and a mandate to teachers across the United States. Make your lessons more experiential or risk failure in guaranteeing the survival of participatory democracy in the United States. Because in the end, it’s all about the teacher.
