Blog: Why Teach Disability History?
Besides the meeting new requirements in History and Social Science Frameworks in several states, all learners benefit when the curriculum includes the history of this large, diverse, and vital group of Americans. Students with disabilities are empowered when they investigate stories of people like them. Classes gain social justice skills as they learn to challenge offensive language and ideas in source materials. All students benefit from study of the many activists who won civil rights and respect for a long oppressed class of citizens. Examine a multilevel rationale in the full post on the EmergingAmerica.org blog.
