In this episode, Karalee Wong Nakatsuka and Laurel Aguilar-Kirchhoff about their upcoming publication, "Bring History and Civics to Life: Lessons and Strategies to Cultivate Informed, Empathetic Citizens." Their book is an invitation to history, civics, and social studies teachers (and all teachers, actually!) to bring empathy, educational technology, and community into the classroom. Karalee & Laurel offer teachers, from beginners to the most advanced, ways to make their classrooms places where representation matters and educational technology can be used to help drive learning and social-emotional learning skills. You really don't want to miss this episode or miss out on reading their fantastic book.
