Highlights

This week we had a virtual field trip with @tjmonticello and it was fabulous! Using images and 3D maps, and guided by the museum’s staff, students discussed equality, freedom, slavery, and the way those philosophies did not intersect in the 18th century. I can’t begin to tell you how wonderful it is to experience Monticello either in person or virtually. They pay attention to and point out the hard history of the Little Mountain. Virtual field trips run by museums are an excellent way to get kids interested and engaged. The change of pace for them is a breath of fresh air and you can take them anywhere in the world! Have you done any live virtual trips yet? #teachersofinstagram #iteachhistory #iteachtoo #socialstudiesteachersfollowloop #ushistoryteacher #teacherfollowloop #teacherblogger #eighthgrade #fifthgrade #middleschool #remotelearning #remotelearning2020 #distancelearning #virtuallearning #virtualfieldtrip

To Begin the School Year, Turn Inward

But being together after a long quarantine summer also means that we continue our individual and collective work as anti-racist educators who continuously seek to diversify our curriculum and teaching to include all voices in our community and beyond. At the sound advice of Facing History, Facing Ourselves, we reflected on our teaching philosophies, our feelings about COVID-19 and being in the building, what we learned during our first go at distance learning from March through May (we are hybrid this year), and we explored our identities. The link to the Facing History self-reflection guide I used with my department is below. It is a great way to get yourself ready for the year ahead, to better inform your teaching, and to come back to throughout the year to see where you are on your path to becoming an anti-racist, anti-bias educator.

My colleagues are the best. Found this on my desk today and it was the best pick me up! #sunshineclub #moirarose #schittscreek

History in the Kitchen: Origins of the Supreme Court, RBG, and Ratatouille

His decision was brilliant: Marshall said that while Marbury should have received the commission, it was unconstitutional for the Supreme Court to give it to him as the Constitution didn’t give them original jurisdiction in cases involving writs of mandamus. After this case, the ACLU established the Women’s Rights Project under Ginsburg to persuade the courts to look at sex-based cases under struct scrutiny, as it does race-based cases. The state of Virginia argued that women weren’t suited for VMI training and that the separate military program at a women’s only college, Mary Baldwin University, was equal to theirs. But Title VII of the Equal Pay act said that pay disparity had to be reported within 180 days of the violation, therefore Ledbetter could only complain about 180 days, not the 19 years of unequal pay throughout her employment.

Join me today for #italianamerican immigration history - I’ll also be highlighting Italian Americans who fought for social justice. And, of course, making #cannoli !

🇮🇹Growing up, I always wondered where the Italian-Americans were in my American history books. I mean, there was brief mention of Italians during immigration units and Sacco and Vanzetti— but where were the real contributions we made? I did NOT like not seeing myself in my American history classes. 🇮🇹Join me on Facebook live this Saturday at 2pm to learn the history of Italian immigration and Italian-American achievements while we make cannoli together! Link to the (free) Facebook event is in my Insta bio and on my Facebook page. 🇮🇹Ingredients you’ll need: cannoli shells (you can get them on Amazon), 1/2c whipping cream, 1/2c powdered sugar, 1/2tsp vanilla, 1/3c mini chocolate chips, 15oz strained ricotta (to do this, put it in a strainer with a paper towel on Friday night!) 🇮🇹Tools you’ll need: Stand mixer or hand mixer, bowl, rubber spatula, icing bag with LARGE tip. #yummy #foodie #foodiesofig #italianamerican #italianamericans #italianamericanheritagemonth #ushistory #history #historyteacher #iteacheighth #iteachfifth #iteachmiddle #teachersofinstagram #teachersofig #teacherblogger #teacheryoutuber
