Blogging Politics: How elementary students can use technology and critical analysis to learn about history and culture

Many topics in politics are difficult to teach to elementary students. This may lead many educators to refrain from teaching them at all. Instead of teaching about these difficult topics without context, it may be easier to look at them through a specific lens of critical analysis. A blog linked with resources would be a great starting point for educators to navigate ways to teach politics to their students. Through the key themes of settler colonialism, intersectionality, truth, and humor, educators can focus on specific parts of a political topic to help make it more accessible to young learners. To enhance these topics even further, educators can incorporate projects that use technology to aid in their students’ learning.
