    Integrating Indigenous History (and not just in October!)

    Integrating Indigenous History (and not just in October!)

    In this week's episode, I discuss two ways in which I've integrated Indigenous history into my classes.  "Months" are important- they highlight a culture's contributions and history- AND they're not the only time we should be representing different groups of people in the narrative.  I chat about strategies I've used to talk about the Lenape, who are the tribe native to my home and school in New Jersey, as well as the latest way I've used an online exhibit at the Harvard Peabody Museum to learn about the Wampanoag.

    Advice for New History & Social Studies Teachers

    Advice for New History & Social Studies Teachers

    I love our history and social studies teacher family, and I can't think of a better way for the Teaching History Her Way Podcast to welcome new and preservice teachers to the family than to give them some advice.  Hey, if they're listening (or you are) it technically isn't unsolicited advice, right?!  From building trust with students to gathering and building a personal learning network, I've identified six things that history and social studies teachers can do right now to make their lives easier as new teachers, preservice teachers, or teachers who aren't so new but might want a little help getting that spark back.  This episode is short and sweet, and an easy listen. :)

    Democracy, Madison, and Our Rights with Linda Monk

    Teachers are called to defend democracy.  Join me as I get the honor of chatting with Linda Monk, JD about the Bill of Rights, the Constitution, James Madison, and the implications of how the Constitution is interpreted.  We chat about the health of democracy, the political origins of the United States, and of, course, what it all meant for different kinds of people back then and now.

    This is a delightful conversation that is informative, entertaining, and most importantly, insightful.  This episode is a highlight of season 3!

    Mabel Ping-Hua Lee: Suffragist & Activist

    Mabel Ping-Hua Lee: Suffragist & Activist

    Lucretia Mott. Susan B. Anthony. Elizabeth Cady Stanton. When you hear those names you probably automatically think about women’s suffrage. The women’s suffrage movement in the United States was led by far more than the usual names, though. There were women of every color, ethnicity, race, and sexuality that fought hard for universal women’s suffrage. Recently, I was teaching my 5th-grade class about the 19th Amendment, and one of my students raised her hand and asked me, “Were there any Asian women involved in the suffrage movement?” While I knew the answer was yes, this was a moment where I had to tell her I needed to do more research, and the story of Dr. Mabel Ping-Hua Lee is one that I want to share with you and with my student as one of empowerment and Asian joy.

    Superheroines of the Civil War with Tracy Garrison Feinberg

    Superheroines of the Civil War with Tracy Garrison Feinberg

    Throughout history, including during the American Civil War, women had and made choices.  We can't tell stories by downplaying women in our complicated and messy history.   Using women of the Civil War, as a vehicle, Tracy Garrison Feinberg and I discuss empowerment, agency, and purpose.  Women's drive to improve society in many ways gives them power, and there is no boilerplate woman!  There is no single story that tells the entirety of the experiences and impact of women in history, and each one somehow turned the tide of history, even those whose names we don't know.

    Join us for this important conversation!

Love that Cheryl is holding space for so many different voices to share their history and stories! Even if it makes other feel uncomfortable, it is necessary for progress!

Helping teachers and students!

I was lucky enough to meet Cheryl Anne at the national conference and have been able to see what an amazing educator she is! Many of us struggle to teach students well and Cheryl Anne has shown she is able to teach students and teachers very well!! Her podcast is just one way she continues to help educators and students learn hard history and the importance of a civics mindset. With social studies education marginalized at all levels, we need more people like this advocating for the Social Studies and what a powerful advocate and source of support she is! This podcast is like a little Personal Learning Community which is vital especially for this educators who are isolated for whatever reason! Each episode is timely and helpful! Give it a listen!
