Crisis in Context: Teaching American History Virtually From Past To Present
Americans are presently enduring at least five overlapping crises: political representation; racial justice; public health; economic crisis due to the pandemic; and the climate crisis.
American history scholars and Macmillan authors Rebecca Edwards, Eric Hinderaker, and Robert Self explore American crises throughout our nation's history, raising questions like: What have other moments of political, economic, and epidemiological crisis looked like? How did we get here? Utilizing historical context to make sense of these "unprecedented times," our panelists discuss these questions and pedagogical techniques to help students learn remotely.
