The Social Studies classroom needs to have current events to keep things fresh. History teachers can use current events to make their content relevant to their students' lives. Civics and Government teachers can use current events to illustrate what they are teaching. Current events can also be used to make Geography, Environmental Science, Law, and Psychology more interesting and more real to students in the classroom. That's the purpose of this blog -- to help teachers and students make sense of what is happening in the world and see how the social sciences are alive today.
