The ideas of race and history of racism are very difficult topics to discuss in the classroom, yet they are concepts and mentalities at the very core of current events. The Ohio State University's Harvey Goldberg Center for Excellence in Teaching is hosting a professional workshop for educators (grades 7-12). The workshop will be held virtually on Zoom.
Over the course of five days, we will cover the following topics:
1. Science, Race, and Society
2. Race, Racism, and the African American Experience in the US
3. Indigenous Peoples in North America
4. Nazi Racism and Antisemitism
Applications are due by Monday, June 14.
Each day will consist of topic overviews led by scholarly experts, pedagogy methods facilitated by master teachers, resource sessions, and group discussions. Participants will gain the skills and tools to successfully teach the “hard histories” of slavery, genocide, colonialism, and white supremacy. The Goldberg Center and College of Education and Human Ecology will provide CEUs and a stipend will be available to those interested in developing teacher resources for publication.
