Teaching about Contemporary Controversies in High Schools and in University Teacher Education Programs

By Alan Singer, Chris Dier, Pablo Muriel, Adeola Tella-Williams, and Cynthia Vitere
Abstract:

Because secondary school teachers face intense scrutiny and censorship, either self-censorship or official restrictions, in their teaching about contemporary controversies, preparing preservice teachers and supporting in-service teachers has become a major focus of the Hofstra University teacher education program. This article originated as a panel session at the 2022 American Historical Association Conference. A teacher educator and four secondary school teachers discuss their fears in the current political climate and ways they try to address them.
