This week UEN Homeroom is pleased to welcome Jenny Nicholas and Holly Reynolds, Social Studies teachers from West High School, to the podcast. Our discussion centers on the role teachers can play in talking with students about the recent protests and political unrest at the U.S. Capitol. We covered topics such as: how teachers can talk about the domestic terrorist attack on the Capitol, the role teachers play in addressing sensitive and passionate subjects, advice for teachers who don’t teach social studies or are elementary teachers in discussing current events, and how to help students to rebuild confidence in our democracy.
