Teach Democracy Now!

“Students watch the Democracy Now! broadcast two days a week and we watch and discuss some of the most relevant material in class the next day. Some notable moments were teaching students about Iran/Contra (something they had not even heard about), Abu Ghraib (again, astonishingly, news to them), and socialism according to Senator Bernie Sanders. At this point in the semester, many students are watching the broadcasts on their own and more often, and I am very gratified to be able to lift the veil a bit for members of this generation.”
