Don't Know Much

Conversations- “Know More,” an online series with the National Council for History Education

History Matters. Let’s Talk About It 
Dear Educators,
One more chance to take part in a “Know More” session on June 3. It will begin at 1:30 PM ET and last for 45 minutes to an hour.
You can learn more and register at the National Council for History Education website.
Here is what we will talk about:

•This is an election year. So our third session (June 3) will be about how we elect a president. Come to mention it, why do we even have one?

Don’t Know Much About® the American Presidents (Hyperion paperback-April 15, 2014)

This session will be a conversation— not a lecture. There won’t be any quick quizzes, tests, or papers to turn in. All you need to bring is your curiosity and your questions.

If you are a student from the middle or high school grades, I hope to see you there. Teachers and parents are welcome to join in as well as we talk about what we should learn from the past.

Space is limited. But we want you to be there. History matters. Now more than ever. When you have questions, ask!

If you missed the first two check them out:

•In our first get-together, we talked about the worst pandemic in modern history— the Spanish flu — and what it had to do with the First World War. And we’ll also look at what lessons we can take from the Spanish flu pandemic today.

  •In our second talk, we discussed the history of slavery in the United States and the stories of five people who were enslaved by four U.S. presidents.
