Joining the show today is educator, historian, and writer Jonathan Wilson to discuss his essay "The Conservatism of My Teaching: Seven Elements." The conversation is a fascinating exploration of some paradoxes embedded withing good, engaged teaching. The productive role of Grand Narratives in student learning. Conceiving education as a moral activity. These are just a few of the rather conservative ideas that liberal and left teachers often employ in their pedagogy. The conversation is filled with fascinating paradoxes and nuggets of wisdom about teaching, including during Covid pandemic.
