Just a few quick updates this week:
iSchoolers in the News
When the iSchool’s Jevin West and Biology Professor Carl Bergstrom started “Calling Bullshit,” they had no idea they were starting a movement. Their curriculum is now showing up at colleges and high schools across the country. Read about it in a new story on our site.
Professor Michelle Martin wrote a piece for Kirkus Collections in response to Philip Nel’s “Was the Cat in the Hat Black?” In “Be an Accomplice,” Martin writes about how to promote diversity in children’s books.
UWTV has a new video featuring Assistant Professor Jason Yip’s KidsTeam. The video is scheduled to air Sunday, Oct. 8, on KOMO-TV on “UW 360.” Check out the video:
