People's History Climate Justice Workshop and Curriculum Group

  • All Souls Church Unitarian 1500 Harvard Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20009 United States (map)

First Session Saturday, October 5, 12:00 noon - 3:00 PM

D.C. Area Educators for Social Justice is forming a working group for D.C. area middle and high school teachers who are committed to teaching with a people's history lens for the 2019-2020 school year. The goals for the working group are to provide feedback on curriculum, support teacher growth and development, and collectively create new curricular resources. The group will meet periodically throughout the school year (based on the availability and preference of participants.)

First Session Details

At the first session (All Souls Church, 1500 Harvard St NW) we will be joined by high school teacher and Rethinking Schools editor Ursula Wolfe-Rocca who is the author of lessons on COINTELPRO, redlining, deportations, reparations, and more.

 Ursula will lead the group in a 45-minute climate justice lesson that is ideal for middle and high school classrooms.

 Then we will divide into sub-groups: one on teaching about climate justice and the other on teaching about challenging myths about U.S. Presidents.

Attendees will receive copies of the New York Times #1619 Project booklet and A People’s Curriculum for the Earth. Refreshments will be served.

We invite you to join us. If you need more information, write to Deborah Menkart
