Teaching African American History with WPA Slave Narratives - AN ONLINE WORKSHOP FOR HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS
ONLINE RESOURCE WORKSHOPS FOR HIGH SCHOOL TEACHERS
* Want to learn more about teaching primary documents in U.S. history classes?
* Want to explore thematic connections between American literature and U.S. history?
* Want to bring art into your history or literature lessons?
The Center's online resource workshops give high school teachers of U.S. history and American literature a deeper understanding of their subject matter. They introduce teachers to fresh texts and critical perspectives and help teachers integrate them into their lessons. Led by distinguished scholars and running 60 to 90 minutes, they are conducted through lecture and discussion using conferencing software. A resource workshop identifies central themes within a topic and explores ways to teach them through the close analysis of primary texts, including works of art, and the use of discussion questions. Texts are drawn from anthologies in the Center's Toolbox Library. To participate, all you need is a computer with an internet connection, a speaker, and a microphone.
Enrollment in each workshop is limited to 18 participants.
* 10 - 35 pages of reading
* $35 registration fee
The registration fee may be paid by a school, district, professional development consortium, Teaching American History project, or other organization.
The National Humanities Center will supply documentation for certificate renewal credit (including technology CEUs).
