I.  Dr. L. Apple, Georgetown, Historical Presentation (C)
    Title:  “The Nation’s Economic Problem Number 1: The American South.”
 
Synopsis
In 1938, President Roosevelt called for a study of economic conditions in the South, stating that he believed it the major social and economic problem. The South responded in two ways. One group, comprised of a few governors, legislators, university presidents, and community leaders proclaimed it as the means for the South to get the attention it needed and deserved. A second group saw it as an attempt to embarrass the South. They blamed northern states and businesses, particularly banks, for the failure of the South to keep pace with other regions. At its worst, their argument cited the burden of intellectually and morally inferior Negroes and a white agrarian working class that was nearly irredeemable.
 
As usual in human events the truth was not one-sided. Study of the topic provides an opportunity to encourage critical thinking skills within ourselves and our students.  That is the major goal of this presentation.


II.  Claire Gwaltney, Kentucky Historical Society Teacher Programs Manager  (TS and SE)
     Title:  Vote for Me!

Do you think everyone should be able to eat ice cream whenever they want? Or that it should be illegal to make kids eat their broccoli? Show off your personality, individuality, and great ideas by running for office! Create a campaign with posters, buttons, and ads to get the word out about what you believe in, wow your voters with fancy speeches, and step through the doors of the Old State Capitol to take your place as Kentucky’s next great politician! This session allows the teachers to experience a KHS Learning Lab and learn how to plan a similar experience for their own students.

I.  Carly Muetterties, UK and Ryan New, Jefferson County Schools (C & TS)
TITLE: Be a Citizen: Connecting America’s Past (1784-1877) to the Present
 
DESCRIPTION: In this workshop, we will explore how teachers can use US History (1784-1877) to propel informed civic action in an out-of-classroom context. In order to complete the inquiry cycle in the Kentucky Academic Standards for Social Studies, students must be able to demonstrate learning by communicating conclusions. There are many ways for students to do so. Connecting history to a modern civic context allows students to communicate conclusions, but also provides teachers an opportunity to: reinforce content understanding through authentic application, allow students to see their ideas play out in the real world, and, likewise, embolden students to see themselves as civic agents. Participants will explore how to provide opportunities for students to take informed action and civically-engage with content in big and small ways. We will use the enduring questions of this period in United States history to consider connections between the issues of the past and civic questions of today, bringing informed civic action into everyday practices.  This workshop is meant to tie the C3 Framework and Inquiry-Based learning to ASPIRE’S yearly objectives.
