We will answer together…
- How do examples of marginalized groups’ experiences in Essex County, Massachusetts illuminate how some histories have been “hidden” within our larger American story?
- How can we help students connect with this history, keeping their voices and ideas at the forefront of our teaching?
- How do we create a safe environment for difficult conversations about complex issues surrounding race, identity, and what it means to be “American,” especially through a local lens that will hit close to home?
Workshop 2: March 27, 2021 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM
The Struggle for Liberty, Equality, and Property: Examining Resistance to Exclusionary Policies Against Black People in Essex County
Each workshop will answer these questions by examining a different topic related to our theme. In advance of the VIRTUAL workshops, you will receive secondary and primary sources and scholars’ recorded presentations to prepare for our time together. At the synchronous workshops, you will interact with scholars and pedagogy experts via a panel discussion, and will work with other teachers in small groups to explore how to integrate content and techniques into curriculum development. Program is designed for secondary humanities teachers, but any educator is welcome to register. You can register for any number of three FREE workshops planned for 2021.
