The Opioid Epidemic

The MCSS has been approached by Mr. Keith Ludden who does oral histories and folklife research with a proposal to do an oral history on the current opioid epidemic. He is curious to know if social studies teachers in Maine would and could make use of this research. Thus, for this blog we are asking the social studies teachers of Maine the following;

 

If an oral history project focusing on opioid abuse were conducted and made available to you in the form of interview   transcripts, images and podcasts, would you use it? If not,why not?  Would the nature of the material or the topic itself be a barrier to use in the classroom? What would make the   project useful to you?
