Schomburg Education and Teachers College’s Center on History and Education present
A History Education Roundtable
Challenging American Inequality: Historical Literacy Matters
Tuesday, March 24, 2015 at 3:00-5:00pm
Light refreshments will be served at 2:00pm
Why have we traditionally looked to historical knowledge as a building block of democratic participation and a central component of what it means to be an American? How can history pedagogy be framed as a challenge to social and economic inequality? How do we reach young learners to appreciate the study of history as integral to their quality of life and the well-being of American democracy?
