About Keynotes from the Classroom
Keynotes from the Classroom and Community is an idea that was born on the back of a paper napkin (as all great ideas are). What we wanted were the voices of real educators and community members who could help us articulate what is right about our profession. What we got was so much more, and we want to make sure that we share these amazing moments as broadly as possible, so if you missed eRev this year, consider the video below a great example of what you have to look forward to next year!
Jon Carl has taught History at the high school level for twenty years, most of them at F.J. Reitz High School where he teaches today. Jon shares his passion for history by making learning real, local and tangible. He uses the term “feel the history” to refer to this approach to learning. Feel the History is also the name of the documentary film class that Jon teaches in which students research local history and create films for the local public television station. Jon graduated from the University of Southern Indiana and received his Master of Education Degree from there as well.
