Engage in Lifelong Learning
Our programs for educators range from one-day professional learning to multi-day institutes. All of our programs are research-based and incorporate best practices in adult education, pedagogy, and classroom strategies.
The Teaching and Learning team hopes to inspire educators with stories from African American history so they feel empowered to share diverse narratives with their students.
Our professional development events strive to:
- Provide a different lens through which to understand American history
- Model strategies for integrating object-based learning and African American primary sources into the classroom
- Explore methods for discussing the history of race and racism within the school environment
