In the Moode for Real History
S4:E8 History Teachers Discuss Presidential Legacies Pt. 1
March 31, 2021
This long awaited midweek premiere features Kaleb and his other fellow Social Studies teacher, Berkan Ciger. These two history teachers discuss how they approach teaching from a people's perspective instead a glossed over textbook perspective. They discuss their views about the "heroification" of figures and how to truly determine the legacy of past presidents. So many students have such a glossy view of presidents because that is what they have always been taught from white washed textbooks. For part one, the two teachers discuss the legacies, both good and bad, of George Washington and Woodrow Wilson.
