People's History Climate Justice Workshop and Curriculum Group
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
Collectively create new curricular resources
The group will meet periodically throughout the school year (based on the availability and preference of participants.)
First Session Saturday, October 5, 12:00 noon - 3:00 PM
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.
