In conversation with Dontavius Williams {Pandemic Pedagogy convo 40} Imagining a New 'We'
How do we teach history in this moment? Chronicles of Adam creator Dontavius Williams talks about what it means to teach history using tools that empower and invite inclusivity. What does it mean to put students in the driver's seat and listen to the stories they need to navigate - and be seen in - this world together? In this Pandemic Pedagogy conversation, Dontavius Williams and I talk about the "we" more than the "me" and the importance of confronting difficult histories and embedded racisms. We talk about classroom teaching, but also about debates about monuments and memorials and the reenacting Dontavius does in Chronicles of Adam.  Filmed at the end of August, Dontavius provides a powerful voice to how central our work as history educators is when we're trying to make change for the people we teach.  The Chronicles of Adam is a first person Historical Interpretation of a slave by the name of Adam that blends historical research, in situ context, and performance art together in a powerful learning experience that is really a sort of ministry to the legacy of those who build America while enslaved.  Learn more about Dontavius and The Chronicles of Adam On the website: www.thechroniclesofadam.weebly.com On Twitter: https://twitter.com/chronicleofadam On Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheChroniclesofAdam/  More about Don: Dontavius Williams, proud alumnus of Clinton College (Rock Hill, SC) is the sole proprietor of The Chronicles of Adam.

Source Saturday: Jennifer Shaw and Jewish Canadian Women during World War Two
In this video, Jennifer talks about how she used oral histories to refute the dominant historiographical notion that Jews did not participate in homefront war activities. In fact, Jewish women’s participation in home front activities carried a much different meaning and weight than it did for other women due to their Jewishness. In our conversation, she showed quotes from her oral history participants and paired them with photographs with little information attached, to demonstrate how the histories of Jewish women’s experiences during the war can be lost without speaking to the women themselves. Buy “Making the Best of It” here: https://www.ubcpress.ca/making-the-best-of-it Connect with Jen on Twitter:  More about Jen: Jennifer Shaw is a PhD candidate in the Department of Women’s Studies and Feminist Research at the University of Western Ontario.

Audio sneak peek: Transforming the Canadian History Classroom: Imagining a New 'We'
Enjoy this reading from the introduction of Transforming the Canadian History Classroom: Imagining a New 'We' by Dr. Samantha Cutrara. We are all our history. Yet in Canadian classrooms, students are often left questioning how they can study a past that does not reflect their present. Despite curricular revisions, the mainstream narrative that shapes the way we teach students about the Canadian nation can be divisive, separating “us” from “them.” Responding to the evolving demographics of an ethnically and culturally heterogeneous population, Transforming the Canadian History Classroom is a call for a radically innovative approach that instead places students – the stories they carry and the histories they want to be part of – at the centre of history education. Samantha Cutrara offers a practical and theoretical guide to creating a learning environment in which students can investigate the historical narratives that infuse their lives and imagine a future that makes room for their diverse identities. She explores how teaching practices and institutional contexts can support ideas of connection, complexity, and care in order to engender meaningful learning and foster a student-centric history education. Drawing on student and teacher interviews and case studies in schools, this progressive study demonstrates how developing a sense of national identity in all Canadian youth can be grounded in the praxis and pedagogies of today’s history education. Both in-training and practicing teachers in history and social studies education need this book to inform their work, as do students and scholars of Canadian studies and critical pedagogy.
