Webinar for Educators: Examining U.S. History Using the 1619 Project – Nov 21
Posted by Pulitzer Center on November 16, 2021
The 1619 Project from The New York Times Magazine aims to reframe U.S. history by placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of our national narrative. It includes 18 essays and over 15 creative works by leading journalists, authors, poets, and historians that examine the lasting legacy of slavery on modern-day business, healthcare, housing, incarceration, education and more. The project also includes a five-episode podcast, close study of primary source documents, and original art and photography.
In this hands-on workshop, led by Pulitzer Center education staff in partnership with the Educators’ Institute for Human Rights, participants will explore text and images from the project and evaluate how these resources can strengthen students’ engagement with their curricula, while also supporting their critical thinking and communication skills. Participants will also examine ways that teachers nationwide are connecting the project to their classrooms through analysis of lessons and student work.
Date and Time: November 21, 2021 | 11:00 AM MST TO 12:00 PM MST
