Drop it in the attendee chat. All right, a lot of people don't want their camera on understandable. OK. Well. Now it's my pleasure to introduce today's presenters. We have three folks with us today, Vic. Pascua Tonio she's an education producer at PBS News Hour. We have sorry, Beth Rosenberg. She's a U.S. history teacher, a writer and host in public speaker. We have Liz Ramos, social studies teacher at Alta Loma High School. So without further ado, we'll turn it over to them. Welcome everybody and welcome to our presenters. Hey everyone, I'm we're so thrilled you're here. 3:00 PM on a Wednesday hump day, I just want to say that my name is Victoria Pass Quintonio I'm education producer at the PBS News Hour. I've run news hour classroom, which is our middle and high school current events website. If you're in elementary or upper elementary school in particular, will you hear from folks a lot that they use us? So I'd love to know more about that. How. How do you use that, are you? Most part teachers, as I know all AF teacher my lesson teachers are and kind of pick and choose the ones that might be better for that age group. But essentially we got a grant from the Library of Congress and. To create an interactive website that uses. Primary sources from their databases, which I don't know if you ever been on the library services website, but they have tons of different databases and you can get lost into a on a wonderful abyss, and so this website might have makes it easier and so that doesn't happen, but I really couldn't do it alone. In fact, it's all teacher written and one of those teachers is Liz Ramos and I'm gonna let her introduce herself and then the other teacher, Mary Beth Rosenberg, is a teacher user of this site, which is what we hope. You are one day if you're not now, and maybe you can ask her questions about that directly, how she uses it because they are both current teachers, so Liz and then sari. Why don't you take it away and tell us a little about yourself? Hello so I'm Liz Ramos. I've been teaching now 17 years here in Southern California at the high school level. I love working with the kiddos inquiry classroom. I love us to dig into the materials. Get them curious. We have a lot of fun laughing and learning together and I really like this project because there's so much richness in the news and hidden stories. That we can bring into our classroom, which the site does so so well, and you can expand that and we'll talk more about that in just a bit. And my name is Sarabeth Rosenberg and. So happy to be here today and I as Vicki said I'm a teacher user of this site. I teach at a high school public high school in New York City and I teach U.S. history and AP U.S. history and I try as much as possible. Every day, if possible, to to push in current events. What's going on in the world and how to think critically. And I believe that using journalism and using the skills that kids acquire using this site, or are foundational and fundamental to any classroom, even not just a social studies classroom. So I'm really excited for us to dig into how to use this site and why it's so important. With so much Siri? So one of the best. Compliments, I think we could get. Actually anyone who works for an educational organization that isn't a school is wow. This looks like it's been written by teachers and it's like, wow, we steal my heart. That's what we hope I think that's what we hope you recognize too, and that's why I particularly will be of use to you. You can hear that teacher voice throughout the topic, how journalists have covered the people's fight for justice. In U.S. history. Love my fellow journalists. Make no mistake. They're not the ones who are making the change. That the ones making the change are. People. We just covered with people, sometimes their journalists who come along and I'm going to show you a couple now and right now that are like. We really. Have quite a story themselves. Do you recognize any of them? But even they are the last ones who would be like, do not make this story about us. OK, so do you recognize any and also from the picture? So recognize anyone, let us know in the chat if you recognize any of these journalists. Move all covered. The people's fight. For justice some of them continue to do so. Any comments? Yeah, I'm gonna do. Do we have any coming in? Attendee chat. Won't let you guys is any. Am I talking to myself? Yeah, it looks OK. That's OK, I just wanted to make sure that. Yes Pamela wow, Pamela Oh my gosh guys, I got a little nervous because I I thought I was having technical problems. Yes, Frederick Douglass. So thank you Pamela and Donna you just got and Stephanie a PBS news hour. T shirt for journalism and action. And that's Ida B Wells on there with a quote on the back that oh now they're coming in. I wonder if there's a delay. Maybe there's a delay. Oh my gosh, Kathy blessing Judy Woodruff, Linda Judy Woodruff. Brendon. You're good. Thank you, Brendan Joanna, Joanne Henry, NPR reporters. I don't think Brendan was talking about me, but I'll take the compliment. Regina. OK, we got so the back of the T shirt says the way to right wrongs is to turn the light of truth upon them. So we have actual primary sources from the Library of Congress on the T shirt. I need your. Mailing address and your size and you can just email me if you don't want to necessarily share that information out loud for everybody, Michelle says. I do, but the phone. OK. If you were having technical problems, it's so tiny. I know it's hard to tell. You should email me 'cause I would love to send you a T shirt. I think that also it's great discussion for that quote of like uncovering, shining the light upon injustice I could be well. So, uhm, let's go on. And by the way, did anyone say Gwen Ifill? They said Judy Woodruff, but Gwen Ifill did we hear from her? OK? So first poll question. In general, how much trust and confidence do you have in the mass media? Such as newspapers, TV and radio. When it comes to reporting the news fully, accurately and fairly, these answers are anonymous, so. Please don't be worried about offending. Me or any fellow journalist we really want you guys to answer this question. Uhm? Pamela got me her dress extra large. It is Pamela made me know that the chat that this was a live event 'cause I was getting worried. I'll put my email in again. So this is, is that enough time someone right yes or no in the chat 'cause I know I do not like to rush the full questions. Do you think I can move on? In general, how much trust and confidence do you have in the mass media such as mirrors, TV? Well, poll results OK, good a great deal no 0. Oh my lordy, yeah, there is a delay. So now I'm glad to see that I see there's a delay in the I forgot about that affair and I should have remembered my fault. A fair amount. 47% not very much. 44 wow, Liz and Sari, any comments ladies not surprised surprised. Not surprised. Not surprised, but This is why we need. We have work to do. Yeah. I just wanna say that I don't want to get in trouble for plagiarism, but I totally that question is verbatim. A Gallup poll question. Trust in the news media. Guys in 1973 look at this chart. We had 68% trust in the news media. And it got to in 7672%, so in 1976. Like 25 years ago about. Uhm 72% yes. I have a great deal of trust or a fair amount in the news media right now. It stands at 36%, so it's pretty much half. Half and then I even put down some on the corn. 2021 a great deal with seven and 1972 it was 18%. So how did we? I mentioned her second ago. How, oh it depends on the source. You better know what Kathy. So how did we go from a journalist like when I fall obvious bias? She worked at the news Hour and I saw her a few times in the elevator and my heart stopped because she's so amazing and always gave me a warm smile. But that was about it in terms of my interactions with her. How did we go from such a fine journalist like this to to these numbers, right? So that's the question we're going to explore today. She became the first black woman to host a nationally televised public affairs program. Washington week. That's now hosted by another black woman, Yamiche Alcindor, and part of the first female Co anchor team to host a national nightly newscast. Of course, with Judy Woodruff. So how did we go? The little part about Gwen's quote, by the way, at the end might be a bit of the answer, and if I say something like question like that, it might sound rhetorical. Honestly, just you can answer it, so please ask questions and make comments throughout the presentation. These are the case studies for journalism and action. Uhm? It's journalism and, and on that first page you can see all the case studies and we're writing two more. That's what the question marks are for one on Native American history and how journalists told their story and science and stem. So if you think you might want to be a writer on that project, stipend included. You should email me 'cause we're getting going with the writing right now and we'd love to work with you. OK, let's go to the next slide. If we. Actually, that's it for me good. I needed a break Liz Ramos take over. OK, so what's the point of this journalism in action website? It's really great. It goes over key moments in U.S. history that a lot of us find in our standards and U.S. history. And I also use this with my AP Government class and there's ways to bring it into the world history as well. I love the the World War Two, one with bringing that into my world history class to help the kids see people breaking barriers. It's great because it uses primary sources and so the kids can see how journalism was used to cover the historic events and how it it really. It helps to shape our narrative and understanding of things and how they serve as primary sources. They're documenting the history as we go. It creates an interactive inquiry. There's opportunities for kids to engage with the material, and taking a closer look, literally enlarging images. The kids creating their own little social media. Activities and the like. We get creative thinking and critical thinking going on by them. Examining things OK. What's the message? How can this be used to save a narrative media literacy? Very, very important, not only just in looking at the primary sources in history, but helping to kids develop that habit of mind that is so needed in today's media landscape that the kids are being inundated in and out of the classroom. We examined the the role of the Free Press. Very important, First Amendment that we have there, through journalism and through civics and so. Also if you are incorporating the Radd road map, you have the opportunities to take a look at how that influences. And and and interacts with items and. So here are the lists of the topics that are currently on there and there's a couple more coming. We have an early American Revolution, the Civil War, mental health, suffrage, muckrakers labor, and Immigration World War Two, Vietnam and Watergate. Welcome to journalism in action and interactive learning tool. Exploring journalism during key moments in American history, we built this learning tool to help middle and high school students examine the role of a Free Press and the meaning of journalism through fun, interactive activities. Students will inquire, ask questions and make their own judgments using primary sources in the form of newspaper articles, broadcast segments, political cartoons and photographs. Curated from the rich databases of the Library of Congress, Journalism and Action is created by PBS News Hour and developed by D'vinci Interactive, the educational resource written by four teachers, is part of the teaching with primary sources partner program and is supported by a grant from the Library of Congress. Journalism in action allows students to learn about 10 key moments in U.S. history through a journalist lens. In this interactive website. Students analyze journalism based primary sources, exploring culture, shifting events affecting civic life. Let's look at the topics we cover. American Revolution Early Republic Civil war mental health women suffrage muckrakers exploitation American Immigration World War Two Vietnam Watergate and gender equality students. Start by reading the historical context. Provided by introductions of each case study. These introductions offer background on the journalists themselves and insights into the news formats that existed at the time or they can simply head right to the interactive investigations at the end of each case, study is an outcome section which highlights public policy changes that came about as a result of civic engagement by everyday citizens. The section also discusses how many issues like civil rights, gender equality. And immigration policy are still being fought and covered by the press today. This website is meant to give students an understanding of how journalism evolved overtime, including racial equality and diversity in journalism. We included journalists of different backgrounds, races, genders and ethnicities, and yet we recognize that much room remains for the project to grow and feature new voices. We also include educator guides to help teachers quickly navigate the case studies. And to find relevant standards, including ICTI standards, each guide provides a summary of how that particular case study supports the understanding of journalism's role in American Society and in some cases why we decided on a particular primary source. One of our main objectives is to provide tips for how you might include these case studies in your social studies, English or journalism curricula. To use journalism in action for assessments. All of the primary source activities can be downloaded. And emailed to you as the teacher or uploaded to learning management systems to be shared with the whole class. Assessments might include the magnifier, annotation and social media interactives which require students to reflect on and analyze a variety of news sources. The final. Create your own story interactive allows students to write a short editorial on a topic of their choice. The standards guiding the project include Common Core C3 and esteem. Finally, we'd like to acknowledge our advisors at the Library of Congress who provided critical feedback, helped us navigate the library's rich databases, and find primary sources which students would find eye opening and intriguing. And of course, a large thank you to our four teacher curriculum writers. We hope you enjoy using journalism in action in your classroom. Take it away, Liz. Liz, are you good to go? I think we need the next slide. Is that what's happening? Yes, I think we have a question coming up. How often do you read or watch your local news? Again, how often do you read or watch your local news? Not often, sometimes a lot. And we we see here that we have a lot 63.6% of you, so the majority of you love it to read and watch your local news. Love that or they just because it's the right thing To Do List. Yes, local news is so important and I'll be talking about that in a little bit. OK, I see here in a chat, mostly NPR VPR and BBC because we don't have cable TV and even without cable TV, subscribing to our local journalism in your state or community, our local journalism needs help in order to sustain themselves. So I'd encourage you to subscribe to your local news organizations as well to keep them going and to utilize them. So this this is quite a different reality in of what's really going on than the teachers here looks like for local news watching. According to this Gallup poll. Right, yes, and we can see that it has. Sadly declined a lot overtime going from 50% every day in 1998 to just 19% every day in 2019 and we could assume based on those trends, that's probably a little bit lower, but I'm glad we got the Rock star group in our midst care. Very important. OK, so here we have journalism and action, so some of you may have heard of inquiry arc and I know in history social sciences where we're using that. If you're a science teacher you haven't inquiry arc in your field as well, so there's lots of different inquiry arc processes, but they all basically follow the same kind of mode where you're. You're have a question that's probing the kids, then you're applying your disciplinary tools and concepts, evaluating the sources. Using the evidence of an experiment and then communicating your ideas so this is a great process. And this is the process that we're going to take your students on as they engage in one of the case studies, or hopefully multiple case studies in the journalism and action set. And there's opportunities at to draw connections to local history. What's going on today? There's ways to help the kids see, OK. Take a look at a case study. How does that relate to today? Or use that to put those practices? And to take a look at what what's going on with Floyd and Frazier? What happened in January 6? I know we were talking a lot about the same same topics and processes of engaging in an inquiry. the US Kabul drone strike, strike, drone strike, killing the Afghanistan aid worker. And we have the most current one. Current issue going on today with Ukraine invasion. And I would say you could also bring that in to talk about the current Senate confirmation hearings, I know. We're very much talking about both of those in my my classes and in the course of going through the journalism action, you're going to also be in gaining gene in some media literacy with some lateral reading, verifying information we want to help get our kids to avoid misinformation. Take a look at the media landscape, help them to become informed citizens. We need our students to to learn how to use the newspaper and and make these connections. And be critical consumers so that they can go on and make informed. Decisions when they leave us out outside of other K12 experience or high school, I mean college. If some of you are using this with college and I always say good trouble. John Lewis is an icon in her class. We have life size cut out of him and we always go back to that. Good trouble about, you know, finding issues, speaking out and. Bringing attention and calling things out, and that's what a lot of the journalists have done in the case studies that your students will be able to engage with. That's gonna bring me to Ellis vetoed. So if you were to take a look, for example at the Muckraker case study, there's a way to bring that into your local history. And the like. So when you're looking at muckrakers, people who bring attention to to different causes and and bring awareness to issues. I do that when we look at civil rights and liberty by do that from the local lens. And so here are I teach. Like I said in in the Southern California Inland Empire, here are a couple of Latino owned publications that were. Owned it. We're bringing attention to the plight of Latinos and discrimination here in the Inland Empire, and I will tell you, most of my students are really surprised when we're talking about them. Civil rights, movement because of how the narrative has often been framed, with mostly taking a look at civil rights movement within the context of African Americans, and then that then other movements. And that's how the AP College Board frames it, and they didn't really think that it really happened here in Southern California, 'cause we're supposed to be in California and progressive. And I'm like, Oh no, no, no. And the kids like, wait, wait, what? And I'm like, yes, no Latinos also face discrimination as well. And there was a lot of that going on here in the Inland Empire. And so here we have Ignacio Lopez, who started El Espectador and he uses his newspaper to bring attention to local issues and I can remember my aunt always telling me about growing up into zuza and how they weren't allowed to use the polls until Sunday and I remember those stories. I'll start off by telling that to my students, and they're like what wait what Miss Ramos and I'm like. Yeah, I'm all Latinos. You were also part of the group that you could only use the pool in the last day before. The pool was drained and cleaned for the next week and so that ends up leading, and that's happening a lot of places here in the Inland Empire. I tell my students. So then we'll take a look if we could go to the next slide. Wow. Leads to a Supreme Court. I'm not Supreme Court a local case out here. Lopez versus said comma and 1944 and in this case, Lopez. Brings about helps to bring about this lawsuit and is bringing attention to this lawsuit in his publication about how Latinos Mexicans were not allowed to use the pool and they weren't supposed to be doing that. So they challenged this into court and they are successful in desegregating, a San Bernardino city pool. And again, this is a 1944 and interesting thing about this is that David C. Marcus is one of the lawyers on this case. David C. Marcus is going to go on to. Work with. Sir, good Marshall and is also one of the attorneys and the Sylvia Mendez versus Westminster case, which here in California we talked about to desegregate the schools here in California. And so he's going to go on to work with Thurgood Marshall, and then help Thurgood Marshall later on goes to work with Brown versus Board of Education. And when I lay out that thread, how here we have a lawyer working on the San Bernardino County, San Bernardino City pool? Who is? Working and then also involved with Amendis versus Westminster case. Who had worked with the lawyer who goes on to argue Brown versus Board of Education? My kids like wait what we never heard this before and so my seniors are like wait what? How did we not hear this? And depending on the teacher they may not have heard of the Mendez case and they're like, wait, we never heard this. I'm like This is why it's important to bring these stories and the kids like yes there's a lot of rich history here. We have another case where we have a whole Rita and Gonzalo Vyas Vyas was owner of a popular radio program. Out here in the Inland Empire, his son tragically dies in a training accident in Des Moines, IA, with the military. His body is flown back here to San Bernardino, and there are developed Lee Catholic family and wanted to have a son buried in the cemetery. Mom wanted him buried at home. They were told he's not allowed to be buried there because they're Mexican. They put pressure on bringing attention to this issue through the publications and bringing a awareness for a while his body was laying in state at home until they finally get the opportunity to to bury him after the pressure. So this is a process of showing kids how people use journalism, local journalism to bring about change here. Follow your local people to my favorites to follow Beau Yarbrough. He works. For our local inland area newspaper and he does some great investigative journalism, they did some really good profiles on the homeless issue here in California, which was a couple of. One of the top issues my students were interested in. He's come and talk to my class, which is great when you can get them to speak about how they cover issues as well, and then Emily Hogan is one of my favorites here for California and her reporting and keeping an eye on what's going on in California. And she did some really great reporting with our disability office when that was a hot mess during the the pandemic and here she's. This one which one? Here's one about COVID testing and so follow your local reporters, and that's how you bring in local issues and investigate reporting and into your class. You can continue and show them how the mud breaking, how journalism important to showing and bringing light, current issues that are important. And so here we have a question when changing current events, how often do you discuss a journalist background with your students? Not at all. Sometimes a lot, especially if they're good at their job a lot, especially if they're really bad at their job. When teaching current events, how often do you discuss a journalist background with your students? Thanks so much. Liz, by the way. This is. Not at all 47%, sometimes 41% about a lot, especially if they do a good job 11% a lot. If they're doing a bad job, alright, good let's. Well, we can't see the question shoot. OK, let me see if I can go back. Uhm? OK, can you see the question now? I can't see the question. Anyone wanna let me know in the chat in case you if you can see the question, I just put it again 'cause I want everybody. I couldn't see it. I couldn't see it or I can't see it. It's up there now. No, but we know why that is moderator. What am I doing wrong? Anything moderator share my lesson? Can you help us out? OK. Hey Vicki, I'm looking. And I typed it in the chat. So I can see the question, yes? Refresh your slides. Oh Laura, are you talking to the person? Cuz I think you're talking to the attendees right? I hope not to us, but some of you saw it and some of you didn't see it. It helps when you teach about perspective and evaluating the source of information as part of the lesson. I saw it both times. Yeah, you gotta refresh that. That screen it's true. Do you, Nicole says? If you guys have any questions about that, I've been doing this for a while and I know that AFP is very understanding and helpful when it comes to missing poll questions. But yeah, you do sometimes have to refresh your screen. So I just want to make a case for. Those for talking about. Sometimes the journalists background. That's my. That's my case, and a lot of that's my my thesis is that sometimes it's a really good thing when you have a story like Thomas Morris Chester who was the son of slaves, he was a lawyer. He was the 1st. African American journalists. 2. Be at the front lines of war during the Civil War again, this black man, son of slaves for a major newspaper, the Philadelphia press, was a major newspaper. His story is that when Richmond is falling capital, the Confederacy, he writes from Jefferson Davis desk. That's what he means when he writes his first line, you don't see it on here as from the speaker's chair who's fled. And basically being accused of treason. So again, son of slaves, African American man who is writing in at the chair in the seat. Now there's folks who are like, is that true or not? I think it's one of those stories and they have to be careful 'cause the whole fake news thing where it doesn't really matter because he was there. We know he was there. If he was in the chair or the one next to it. But this is a powerful. This is. This is getting at that feast. That idea of when we're pointing out the injustices, and sometimes the journalists themselves is, is is sort of a remarkable story in and of themselves. Other journalists who and you guys can disagree with me? Or could you actually just let me know of any other journalists you might admire in the chat, and then sari is gonna take it away when we talk about journalists who covered women's suffrage. So Siri, take it away. So this is a topic really near and dear to my heart. Because. Because I'm sorry that was my Siri. My name is Sari because aside from teeth and aside from teaching U.S. history and AP U.S. history I have, I'm a co-founder of the Feminist Club at my school that was found in 2015. And we. And so I don't not only integrate these really important stories that intersect both journalism and the women freedom, liberation, freedom suffered struggle in my classes. But we also talk about this a lot at our feminist club, and I think it's really important. And what I love about this. What this part of the site is that the writers of this curriculum seamlessly integrate the topic of intersectionality here, and if you don't know just quick definition, intersectionality is basically based on the idea that everyone has a unique experience of discrimination and oppression based on their various layers of identity. So white presenting. The woman has a different has, had a different experience than somewhat a person of color or black woman back in the day. In, for example, the woman suffrage movement, and then even in the second and third and now 4th. And are we in the 5th wave of the feminist movement? It's important to keep it. Keep that into account and it's something that if you ask your students, especially high schoolers and maybe middle schoolers, they're very well aware of this concept of intersectionality. And so I love that. It's it's not done in a presentist way. It's done. A really historical way on the site. And the question here is, do you recognize these famous suffragettes and I? I'm curious to see what people say in the chat. Do you recognize these people? And I know there's a delay. Yeah, there's a leg. So be careful of the delay and also knowing that. The first three folks who enter their answers, if they haven't won a T shirt already win. A T shirt with women suffrage, by the way, Sarah. I don't know if you saw that on front. Cover up a T shirt. Yeah, I love that. And then like lots of Ida B wells. Oh, that's so cool. I love we love it. Look up on them. Yeah, so how good we got a Susan B Anthony? I'm gonna let Vicki do this. What Laura you got it top right? Yeah, the knee where to go? Goodnight, Stephanie Stephanie. Not coming in. Lisa, what are we gonna do? This is why this is when you when you. Don't pretend the training meetings because I think there's so many virtual conferences. I'm like I'm all set, but they remind you that there is a delay and so that is my mistake that should be blamed only on Vicki. Everybody looks like everybody is a winner. What do we do then? They all get they if they give me their address and size then you know what great. OK, so our poll question we have we we have about 10 minutes, 10 more minutes. Just mindful we're all set teachers. I'm so mindful of time all the time to a default to a fault maybe so our poll question here is how often do you discuss current events with your students and the options are a little bit sometimes often, and our favorite not available. That could interpret that as you will. We're going to leave it, yeah? Yeah, we got yeah we got you just. So many winners. Oh, they're still coming in. I don't know now is it a delay or are we cheating? I'm just kidding. Yeah, it's definitely. The delay is helping. 'cause now I'm like, maybe it was the delay. Yeah, Sharyland Kathio Kathy email, I will put up. Does everyone know that Frederick Douglass was a famous suffragist like he went to the Seneca Falls Convention and all that stuff? Great, so let's see. Did I just make up? Would I just refuse? I thought that he actually went and do I need to? Yeah he's there and and the women in the suffrage movement were inspired by their work in the abolitionist movement. So there's an interplay there. OK, that's amazing. Can we? OK good good often we love often. How do we feel about? Often Vicki, we love that I don't know. Also sometimes that's almost 100% audience is amazing. Let's let's make it a little more personal because we actually I have to brag about my coast. Also amazing. Does everyone know that you have a keynote speaker presenting right now? Sarah Beth Rosenberg in a few hours. What time Siri? We are presenting at 6:00 PM. I'm speaking with my two Co founders of teachers unify against gun violence, which we'd love for all of you. Attend the keynote and follow. Follow at teachers unify. We are bringing together, hopefully a large cohort of teacher supporters of teachers. Retired teachers too. Unify against gun violence in our communities and schools. But we'll talk more about that out there, yeah, so. But it relates to this next slide, because if you don't know Sarah Beth Rosenberg at Sarabeth roses, her Twitter, she gives students voice so much voice on social media. She will be the first one to say slightly a little easier if we're keeping it real in New York City, but when she hosts our news hour, educator voice zooms and we have teachers from all over the country who are sharing their stories of how difficult like to say even masks stuff was for schools. She really gives teachers voice. She steps out on a limb. And by the way, people go after all the time on social media, but we're so grateful to you, Sarah, 'cause there's such a pro teacher voice. It's incredible. But why don't you go ahead and tell us a little about Santiago Meyer, who you also you're sort of a mentor for and how he kind of did a job of a journalist here, by the way. So another one you might recognize me also from hosting the PBS NewsHour Classroom Educator series, which we launched in the in the heart of the pandemic, and continue to hold them and one of our guests was Santiago Mayor when we were talking about the 2020 election, his his organization is voters of tomorrow and they are, and a nonpartisan group with the mission of getting Gen Z out to vote. Or jensi involved in voting if they are not a voting age yet and. This is a great example of what we like to call. Is citizen journalism. And yes, I agree that one of the problems with social media is the fact that it's makes it very difficult to determine what is actually a trustworthy news site. But I believe that the journalism in action site is very helpful and both helping teachers and also students navigate that. Because I do think that Twitter can be a wealth of of journalistic information because whether we like it or not, Twitter. Instagram does drive the news right, and yes, sometimes in bad ways. Terrible ways. But in this instance, Santiago Mayor got us scoop. I won't say how, but he got an inside scoop from a source that the speaker of the Indiana House representatives had had had a somewhat of a conflict of interest going on. He was a vice president at College Board, where he was actually. Do a liaison with thousands of schools and involved in shaping curriculum and for College Board. But he was also pushing a bill as Speaker of the Indiana House that was looking to ban books and it's a bit of an exaggeration, but definitely one of those anti quote UN quote CRT bills, so Santiago tweeted this out and we just started tagging reputable, important, reputable journalists. And how do we know who they are well? Go to journalism in action. They have a great. Great way to test that out, but one person that meant a lot of the journalists didn't bite, but I've been asking for a while. Like where was College Board with all these anti history laws? Because it's going to run counter to some of this curriculum that is actually supposed to be taught right? And then this came up so I I sent it over to Jud Lagoon. Who's a incredible journalist his his site is popular info and he was really intrigued by this. First thing he said, which I knew made him, I know I knew he's a good journalist, but it just further confirmed it. He said this is a much more complicated story. There's more to it and I was like, alright, he's going to get the scoop and he took a couple days which would have taken me months and he figured out the story and they published the story, revealing that you know, this top executive played a central role in advancing legislation to limit what team it wouldn't say. Regarding race, history and politics in Indiana classrooms and well, this story came out. College Board didn't say much, but then their response was that this top exact no longer works at College Board now, so that's that's an example of how. You know citizen journalism can work with what I consider for good, because I don't want to have someone shaping a College Board curriculum who's also putting a chill on what can be taught in our classrooms across the country. Well in Indiana in particular. And then I know we are. I know that we are where I wanna just. We'll just talk a little bit. I'll just the connection here is that Vicki and the chat mentioned that we do an educator voice zoom while we we had an incredible one about a topic that isn't is still alive and well. But I don't think we talk a lot about and so, and it's the fact that the equal Rights Amendment can be extended and can be added to the Constitution as potentially the 20th amendment. But it's yet to pass through and and roughly a year ago last March, the last women's History Month of 2021, I hosted an incredible discussion. If I do say so myself with Senator Spearman from Nevada State Senator Spearman from Nevada, and Kate Kelly who. Is an incredible activist and proponent of the ER A? Is there a website or link? Yes, Vicki can put a link to the YouTube. We have a YouTube channel you can watch all the previous educator voice zooms will put that in the chat, but we had this incredible discussion with Kate Kelly and Senator Spearman about the future of the era and where it's going. And I think it was a really fruitful discussion and an example of how you know. There's all different. Let's just like there's different layers. There's different layers and everything in life, including journalism, right? And so. I think it's a greatest power. Yeah, we can see that it's and and we're going to leave you with this final message with Spearman. Like let me just say really quickly. I think that I think that as teachers, it's really important to empower young people with information, media literacy, critical thinking skills and encourage them to also look for the latest scoop and and get it out there. And maybe make a difference in their local communities. The state you know, their states, or maybe the country or the world. So we'll leave you with Senator Spearman. And thank you so much for joining us. Second, to come back on. So yeah, we'll say goodbye. We know that we deserve to have our equality in the Constitution, and it's not about giving me. It's about recognizing that I'm already equal and recognized those equal rights and so don't listen to anybody that tells you we can't do it because together we will get this done. We will not stop until we get it done. We will not retreat until we get it done. So don't listen to the people, the naysayers. We're gonna get it done and we won't get it done because ain't no stopping us now. That's what I got to say. We know that we do. I love it, OK? I just want to say that that's sort of the beauty of. Uhm? He zooms is that. Like she came on this state representative sorry senator and talked to all of us as teachers and. Like basically I guess my point is, is that. That's the kind of spirit we wanna put in our kids. Isn't that like the dream spirit and energy and smarts? Pat Spearman. She's kind of an older lady and she's never stopped fighting. She's a military veteran. OK, of 30 years and like it's just, you know, Terry, you have that spiritual and I know that's why Senator spirit and she's so fond of you. And I, I just think that's so, so important. So I know that we want you to join those zooms. Those zooms are so much fun. Because quite frankly. Here's a. They I don't want to say anything, but we we we talk about a lot of topics about teachers that maybe we sometimes think the journalists aren't exactly covering. Can I, can I say quickly wrapping up? Why don't you? And I think one of them that I think every teacher became a part of, whether they wanted to be public about it or not. But we had several. We've had many zooms discussing COVID in the classrooms, and we've had some incredible guests, including we had. We've had Peter Hotez a number of times. We've had Eric Ding. We've had the list goes on and on. I would, we we lose our time now if I kept listing and. And I do think that some of the journalists who attended them. We're very much inspired by the teachers experiences in the trenches in the classroom, and I do like to think that I don't think it move the needle enough in my opinion. But I do think it moved the needle a little bit more in terms of how the media was covering COVID during the really, really rough time during the pandemic when there was no vaccine. Even so, I really thank you. Thank you, so we have 15 seconds. I just want to thank Siri. And Liz from the bottom of my heart. It's so amazing to present with teachers you have no idea it's such an honor for me. And also all of the teachers who came today. Thank you. Thank you so much for what you do.
