Peter Paccone

Social Studies Teacher, Grades 9 to 12

I’m a San Marino High School social studies teacher with 30 years of teaching experience. A big fan of education technology, civic learning, PBL, flipping, and all things TED, I frequently write about these topics for Edutopia, KQED’s In the Classroom, PBS’s Teacher’s Lounge, and several other online, education-related publications. I gave an ED-Talk (TED-Talk style) presentation at the 2015 and 2016 California Teachers Summit and at the 2016 Arcadia Innovative Teacher Summit. My first ever TED-Ed Lesson is Why Is the US Constitution So Hard to Amend?
