Tuesday on Lake Effect: Teaching Racial History, 'Father Lands,' 'The Playbook,' Vitamin D

Mar 6, 2017

Tuesday on Lake Effect

Project Milwaukee: Segregation Matters continues with a look at education. We meet two suburban social studies teachers who have taken it upon themselves to make race something their students talk about year-round. Later, writer Kwame Alexander says literature can be a great tool for fostering empathy in young readers. And we get a primer on what Vitamin D really does for the human body.

Guests: 

  • Erin McCarthy and Colleen Perry, social studies teachers, Greendale Middle School
  • Emily Ballou, author, Father Lands
  • Kwame Alexander, author, The Playbook: 52 Rules to Aim, Shoot and Score In This Game Called Life; Randy Preston, musician
  • Jim Spangler, essayist
  • Dr. Alexander Arnold, UW-Milwaukee
