The January 6 Insurrection at the US Capitol stunned America and the world. What happened and why? What historical and current events culminated in the near collapse of the Great American Experiment? This class develops the tools and builds the curriculum for teachers so their students will learn the political, racial, economic and cultural roots of this violent event and understand why it matters. The course culminates in the development of resources and strategies to help teachers both teach about America’s fragile democracy and engage students in being active participants within it.
