A student once asked me, in the middle of teaching Ancient Civilizations, “Why don’t we ever learn about Brooklyn?”

The notion bothered me all week. Why didn’t we? Student communities have so many rich learning opportunities that deserve to be explored outside of....
...a quick museum trip or a quick guest visit. We could have the same outcomes and use the same standards with Brooklyn-themed historical/current texts, experiences, and more. We wouldn’t have to roleplay, like my students pictured in my classroom above. ☝🏾
Instead of being confined to the classroom, we could learn without walls, on the steps of Jackie Robinson’s house, in the @Weeksville Heritage Center, in the archives of @BKLYNlibrary, & so much more.

Stellar piece by @joanwalsh on Biden not being in touch with who we are now

"I’m reminded that,for most of us--women & Americans who aren’t white--America hasn’t yet been the America of the great dreams & soaring rhetoric that Biden brings to the video."…
More facts:
@joanwalsh writes: "It’s clear Biden still intends to center his campaign on blue-collar white men. Meanwhile...Biden’s first actual campaign event—it’s not public—will be at a fund-raiser held by Comcast senior vice president David Cohen in Philadelphia on Thursday."
Walsh details the baggage Biden brings with him, from Anita Hill to the bankruptcy and crime bills that crushed whole groups of Americans. She lays out the case for why Biden is not the candidate of now (or even then). And suggests the debate stage will be a proof test.
