Teaching African American History 10/25/19 (Non-PDS Schools Only)

Description: To understand American history it is essential for educators and students to know African American history. How teachers can appropriately facilitate discussions about race and equity with students of different ages? How educators can be prepared to handle the emotional responses of students, families, and themselves when teaching difficult and controversial content related to race and equity? How educators help to cultivate young adults who are engaged in public dialogue and action for equity? How local and regional history can be used to make our collective and diverse experiences more relevant for students? These topics will be the focus of presentations and break-out sessions in the all-day workshop. Teachers and administrators will be equipped with best practices to help students grapple with difficult history, think critically, and become active participants in our diverse democracy.
