#1 How Can History Help You During a Pandemic?

Wednesday 27 May, 4-5:30 PM Pacific, 7-8:30 PM Eastern


What’s the point of taking a history class now? History teachers know that historical thinking skills help students evaluate sources and arguments in the past and the present, but communicating that to our students is a challenge, particularly now. The sources and strategies shared in this session offer paths to engaging students and connecting historical thinking skills to their lived experiences in the context of our new normal.
