Save the Date: The 1619 Project Education 2023 Conference – Feb 18-19

Posted by Pulitzer Center on December 6, 2022

Taking place on February 18 and 19, the second 1619 Education Conference will offer participants the opportunity to learn from The 1619 Project Education Network members about the units they created and implemented as part of the program, the strategies and resources they found most helpful, and their key takeaways from their experience connecting the project to their students. The conference will also allow attendees to view the creative ways our Afterschool Program Partners explored The 1619 Project with students in outside-of-school programs and participate in learning workshops with project resources.

There are educators #Teaching1619 in all education contexts. If you’re an outside-of-school educator, librarian, or community leader, you may find resources to spark students’ creativity, teamwork, critical thinking, and media literacy skills in these activities for afterschool educators, which give various entry points into exploring multimedia components and text excerpts from The 1619 Project.

The conference will include an exploration of project resources and a Q&A for educators interested in joining the second cohort of the 1619 Education Network. Participants will also hear from contributors to The 1619 Project and professors who have connected 1619 books to schools of education.
