ANUAH Discussion Forum

Leading By Example, in the 21st Century...

WELCOME to Alaska's Discussion Forum for Teaching & Learning about History & Human Nature

ANUAH has metamorphosed.  Our original network has expanded its' focus  (and added a "silent H" to its' name).  What started as a network of educators focused on understanding and teaching about American history has grown into a network for understanding  and teaching about the history of our entire species.  No place or time is now out of bounds...


The Alaska Network for Understanding American History started as a U.S. Department of Education- Teaching American History Grant project for Alaskan educators, developed by the Anchorage School District.  As a collection of projects and resources for students and teachers of history, the ideas, lesson plans and web links that have accumulated in here over the years seemed too valuable to just be erased after that grant ended.  For this reason, in 2013, the Alaska Council For the Social Studies  agreed to take over the maintenance and development of this state-wide history education resource.


How this forum for important questions and ideas continues to grow in the future is a matter of imagination as well as collaboration.  The hope of AK-CSS is to see this site host an expanding number of discussions for educators on topics of value to those interested in the future of teaching and learning about History and Social Studies in Alaska.  If you have a topic for this Forum, please join us, and start sharing...  There's no time like the present.

What is the role of WISDOM in teaching and learning Social Studies? 12 Replies

Is WISDOM an idea that has any relevance in this day and age?  Why does this concept come up so little in current K-12 curriculum development and educational policy discussions?  If wisdom still is important, what role can social studies teachers play in propagating it (or at least inquiries about it) in 21st C. public education?  What other questions do we need to be asking?Continue
