At Learner, we've been talking a lot the last couple of years about how to teach about controversial issues and help students express their ideas with confidence and respect. We curated some resources that support discussing controversial issues on our blog (I added the NewseumEd resources you used today in the blog comments.): https://shar.es/1lLmQJ

Historian Joseph J. Ellis said, "The best and worst of American history are inextricably tangled together in Jefferson." Read about Thomas Jefferson in American Passages, unit 4, “Spirit of Nationalism,” to find out what Ellis meant. http://bit.ly/1qp08KI

“If you present poetry as if it were castor oil, no one will be interested. Instead, teachers can approach it as something fun, and also explore poetry that connects to the students and their lives (as opposed to choosing poetry that they feel “should” be studied).” – Nikki Grimes http://bit.ly/1V9u5LL

Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison (b.3.1.1914) was published in 1952 and sparked an ongoing debate about the obligations and consequences of a "black identity." As you watch "Becoming Visible" in American Passages, consider how Ellison and his peers responded to the social and political tensions of the time. http://bit.ly/1ngssgg

Introductions  - 
 
Hi #ANEW16  participants! We look forward to seeing you Monday. Just a quick note about us: Annenberg Learner funds and distributes, via www.Learner.org, free classroom and teacher professional development resources in all subjects. We also get to support programs like Newseum Education's summer teacher institute "Primarily Digital." We spend a lot of time behind the computer, and are grateful for opportunities to meet with teachers face to face.

The discussions you have been having on this Google community have mirrored some of the discussions we have been having while completing research this year about teachers' needs for 21st Century classrooms. Especially related to using technology and helping students build confidence and connect their learning with their life experiences.

We look forward to learning from you. Have a wonderful time.

Accepting applications now for the free 2016 Annenberg-Newseum Summer Institute "Primarily Digital," July 18-20. http://bit.ly/1SoOfM4
The three-day institute is for educators who are actively using technology in their classrooms, but are looking for novel uses.

"When a song or video goes viral, it’s good news for the artists who created it. When a viral infection causes a human epidemic, it’s the opposite." Our blog writer Jenny Weeks walks us through how diseases such as Ebola and Zika spread and how scientists study and fight them in The Science of Diseases: Going Viral in a Bad Way. http://bit.ly/1VQCMYn
