TOPIC
Chalk the Vote: Education and Presidential Elections
In today’s polarized political climate, presidential elections can be a difficult subject in the classroom. On one hand, current events can be a link between today’s students the elections of the past, but on the other hand, teachers of history must be careful to form a wall of separation between educating and electioneering. Join KATH in finding the perfect intersection between hot-button issues of the day and their connection to the past.

FEATURED SPEAKERS
Professor Joshua A. Douglas, J.D. (College of Law, University of Kentucky)
Professor James Klotter, Ph.D. (State Historian of Kentucky and Professor of History, Georgetown College)
