Teaching and Reaching Balanced History

Your C.O.R.E. and H.E.A.R.T.

with presenter Micah Miner

5/7/2024 at 7:00 AM (Pacific Standard Time)

Live Online 7/23/24

Teaching social studies and history presents unique challenges and opportunities in today's polarized society.  This workshop offers educators a transformative approach to navigating contentious historical narratives and fostering a classroom environment that embraces diversity, empathy, and critical thinking.

Participants will explore the dual frameworks of C.O.R. E. (Critical thinking, Openness, Respect, Engagement) and H.E.A.R.T. (Honesty, Empathy, Accountability, Responsibility, and Thoughtfulness) to equip students with the skills necessary to analyze historical events critically, appreciate multiple perspectives, and engage in respectful dialogue.

Objectives and Success Criteria:

  • Empower Critical Analysis:  Learn strategies to encourage critical thinking about historical narratives, using generative AI and other edtech tools to present diverse perspectives. 
  • Foster Inclusivity and Empathy:  Develop methods to create an inclusive classroom environment that respects and values diverse historical accounts and contemporary social issues.
  • Navigate Controversial Topics:  Gain insights on how to approach controversial topics in a way that promotes understanding, critical engagement, and balanced viewpoints.
  • Integrate Technology and AI: Discover how generative AI can be a powerful ally in teaching balanced history, facilitating richer classroom discussions, and encouraging critical examination of sources.
  • Practice Respectful Disagreement: Master the art of teaching students to disagree without being disagreeable, emphasizing the importance of dialogue and understanding over conflict. 

Micah Miner is a presenter, Educational Blogger, American Consortium for Equity in Education Contributing Writer, and Times 10 Publications Author.  He is the District Technology & Social Studies at Maywood, Melrose Park, Broadview School district 89.
