Re: Teaching Blog #2: Writing Eugenics into a Survey Course: A First-Time Instructor Reflects

Glad to hear you're using the film The Black Stork. If your students are confused by it, you might have them read 3 short encyclopedia entries I wrote that might help:
“Eugenics,” “Haiselden, Harry,” and “Black Stork,” in Encyclopedia of American Disability History, ed. Susan Burch (NY: Facts on File, 2009), pp. 114-15, 333-37, and 418-19..
Of course chapters from my book The Black Stork would be a good follow-up.

A 12 minute podcast primarily on La Follette's contributions to the women's suffrage campaign can be found at:
