Today's bonus minisode is a follow-up to our last episode about civic education. We're joined by Dr. David Dockterman, a lecturer at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and host of Shaping the Future, as he talks about how teachers can facilitate difficult classroom discussions, particularly considering questions that may arise about the impeachment inquiry currently in the news. Dr. Emma Humphries, Chief Education Officer at iCivics, is back this week in an interview with Geraldine Stevens, HMH's Senior Director of Social Studies, Science, and World Languages, about social studies best practices and leveraging teachable moments when they arise. Then, Dock chats with Jayson Chang, a high school social science teacher, about how the impeachment conversation went with his students.
