Teaching African American History: A Workshop for K-12 Educators

To understand American history it is essential for educators and students to know African American history.

  • How can teachers appropriately facilitate discussions about race and equity with students of different ages?
  • How can educators be prepared to handle the emotional responses of students, families, and themselves when teaching difficult and controversial content related to race and equity?
  • How do educators help to cultivate young adults who are engaged in public dialogue and action for equity?
  • How can local and regional history 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 this 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.
