The battles over how we teach and understand our country’s past are raging like few times in America’s history, resulting in the tearing down of statues and deep divisions on the creation of history and civics coursework.
At the School of Public Policy, we have always valued the importance of teaching our nation’s Founding Principles as a way of preparing tomorrow’s public leaders. Join us, then, on Friday, NOV 15th at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley for Pepperdine’s 2019 Reagan Lecture with renowned historian and our Reagan Professor of Public Policy, Dr. Bill McClay as he offers the address, “Recovering the American Story: Historical Consciousness and the American Past”.
McClay is the author of the bestselling history textbook, Land of Hope: An Invitation into the Great American Story, and will be arguing for a narrative approach to the teaching of American history that understands America as an exceptional nation. Join us for this FREE and enlightening conversation about how we should think about our history as we teach it to the next generation. There will be a book signing following the Lecture.
