The Role Of A Social Studies Education In Democracy

"Democracy is not a spectator sport," says Kenneth C Davis, author of America's Hidden History and the new Don't Know Much About History. We discuss the role of social studies education in encouraging students to be active and informed participants in democracy. And, we take a look at the new "Moose on the Loose" social studies curriculum for New Hampshire students. 

Original air date: Thursday, October 3rd at 9 a.m.


  • Kenneth C Davis - Author of many educational history and nonfiction books for children and young adults, including America's Hidden History, In the Shadow of Liberty, and More Deadly Than War. His most recent book is an additional to the Don't Know Much Aboutseries, Don't Know Much About History. 

Davis will be speaking at an event hosted by the NH Historical Society on Thursday, October 3rd at 6 p.m
