costs of attending (travel, hotel, and meals) will be covered by Virginia Humanities, thanks to the support of the Kellogg Foundation.
Please note, the grant used to fund this is specific to these six divisions: Arlington, Charlottesville, Harrisonburg, Norfolk, Richmond, or Roanoke. However, divisions nearby (e.g., Chesterfield County) may be accepted.
You can expect to:
• Participate in a transformative Racial Healing Circle
• Receive training in educational technology, Google Expeditions
• Learn to develop storytelling podcasts with your students
• Collaborate with other educators creating practical hands-on lesson plans
Participants will work together to develop lesson plans, receive training in Google Expeditions and create history podcasts, among other things. As part of a larger grant-funded project (more details below), the goal of the Institute is to enable teachers to work with their students to connect local histories and personal stories and to tell broader narratives histories on race and place.
Learn to work with your students connecting local histories and personal stories & to tell broader
narratives on race and place.
To apply or ask questions: Please submit a statement of interest of up to 250 words and a letter of support from your principal or other school administrator, to Susan Perdue, Project Director, at TRHTVA@gmail.com by May 11, 2018.
