Social Responsibilities

  • Partnered to produce a three-episode podcast series to engage social studies teachers in high-quality instructional materials. 

  • Writer and host: Ebony McKiver

Social Responsibilities seeks to serve as an opportunity for social studies educators to discover a passion for emerging instructional methods and rediscover a love for many tried and true techniques. We aren't advocating for you to add something else onto your workload, but to reimagine what social studies instruction could look like in your classroom. More info here.
