Schools, of course, came up.
I’m sure many Oakland teachers are using this historic event, and the enthusiasm surrounding it, as a teachable moment. Please, fill me in! I’m interested in class (or school) projects, or even just class discussions, related to Barack Obama’s inauguration.
I plan to visit at least one classroom for this story – with a photographer – in January. If you’re interested, send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call me at (510) 208-6424.
I also welcome you to share your plans, thoughts, and ideas on this forum. Has Obama’s popularity among young people made it easier to interest kids in the political process?
