Love!

Love this podcast! I’ve learned so much from these hosts on how to design inquiry based lessons and connect history to today! I love listening to visions on my way to work for extra motivation to encourage my students to use their historical thinking skills in their everyday lives!

An invaluable resource

As a social studies curriculum leader, I am so appreciative of this podcast. Whether it’s wrestling with inquiry, tackling the nuances of teaching controversial issues, or working to ensure that social studies is a window for students to see beyond the classroom, there’s always an episode that helps me dig deeper with my thinking. My professional learning with my colleagues has become stronger thanks to the pod.

Glad I found this podcast

I found this podcast on a list of resources that my professor provided for a course in our teacher education program. The material is extremely interesting and relevant to those who are or want to become social studies teachers. I like how the podcast gives concrete examples for what teachers can do to promote a more inclusive curriculum, as well as the current problems with the curriculum. The hosts are very insightful and bring on excellent guests each episode. Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedules to create this podcast!
