Teaching the Capitol Siege
In the days immediately following the assault on the U.S. Capitol, teachers struggled to address this historic event with their students. How did they respond to students’ fears, answer their questions, and help classes get the facts straight about what happened? Did teachers call it a riot, an insurrection, a siege, or an assault on democracy? Were some teachers unable to discuss the topic at all, given the polarized nature of their communities?
Join us for an informal discussion on how schools, teachers, and students addressed the January 6th Capitol Siege.
