Description

The New Hampshire Historical Society invites you to join New York Times best-selling author Kenneth C. Davis for a free public lecture, "Democracy Is Not a Spectator Sport: The Vital Role of Social Studies in Safeguarding Our Rights" at Concord City Auditorium. Creator of the popular Don't Know Much About series, Davis will be speaking on the importance of schools offering dynamic social studies instruction. The Society’s new online statewide social studies curriculum for upper elementary students, entitled “Moose on the Loose: Social Studies for Granite State Kids,” will be previewed at the lecture as well. This curriculum was created by the Society to help halt the marginalization of social studies in the state’s schools. The talk is presented in partnership with New Hampshire Humanities, the New Hampshire Council for the Social Studies, NHPR’s Civics 101, and Gibson's Book Store.
