Join us at The National Center for Civil and Human Rights this spring for a 2-day workshop helping educators understand frameworks used to create impactful and empathy building learning experiences for students learning about slavery and American history. Both workshops will be held from 9am-3pm.
Day One: Teaching Hard History: American Slavery | February 1, 2023
- In this interactive workshop, educators will explore Learning for Justice’s Teaching Hard History: American Slavery framework. They will connect their identity with their current practices around teaching enslavement, then use their reflections to address gaps in their curriculum and instruction. In addition, they will also have the opportunity to reflect on the legacy of slavery influences their local community today.
Day Two: Advocating for Teaching Honest History: What Educators Can Do | February 2, 2023
- This workshop will begin by providing educators with an opportunity to connect to each other by listening and conversing with other participants about their experience responding to pushback to teaching honest histories. Then, participants will learn about Learning for Justice’s resource on what we can do to advocate for honest history, which includes learning about stories of success and identifying what tools have worked in those stories. Finally, participants will have the opportunity to create an action plan for advocacy in their community by drawing from the experiences of other participants and Learning for Justice’s research, adding to a coalition of communities across the country.
