Recording: Power of Place: Exploring Local Events in Class, Mar 8, 2022

The January 6th insurrection raised big questions in classrooms. Some teachers discussed the event along with other serious local political events. Others were hesitant because of polarized local politics. Teachers feel that their local political media environment impacts how their district tackles tough topics. We will explore the policy approaches, media implications, and cultural considerations teachers can consider as they help kids view the world from where they live.
