About This Event

To provide teachers an opportunity to explore how to teach about the rich history of the Reconstruction era, the National Museum of African American History (NMAAHC) and the Zinn Education Project are offering a two-day workshop for 30 middle and high school teachers.

The workshop will be in person at NMAAHC, with time for participants to explore the special exhibit, Make Good the Promises: Reconstruction and Its Legacies. Participants will also engage in middle and high school lessons from the Zinn Education Project Teach Reconstruction campaign, review primary source documents and audio resources, and share teaching ideas with peers. The content of the sessions will draw from the Make Good the Promises exhibit (and companion book) and the Zinn Education Project national report, Erasing the Black Freedom Struggle.

Lunch is provided. Participants receive copies of the lessons, professional development certificate, and two books, Make Good the Promises: Reclaiming Reconstruction and Its Legacies and Black Was the Ink.

This event is for middle and high school social studies or language arts teachers, social studies curriculum specialists, and social studies methods teacher educators.
