How can educators working in the afterschool space use resources from "The 1619 Project" to spark their students' creativity, teamwork, critical thinking, and media literacy skills? Join us for a webinar to explore new educational resources and methods to help educators bring "The 1619 Project" into the afterschool space. In addition to examining the history and the legacy of slavery in the United States, these resources guide students in celebrating the contributions of Black Americans to democracy and exploring the genius of Black innovators and artists.
Join us Wednesday, October 20 at 1:00pm EDT / 10:00am PDT to learn more about these resources and how afterschool educators can access them freely on the Mizzen by Mott app. We will also hear from experienced afterschool practitioners about their racial justice education work, how they foster safe and inclusive spaces for students when exploring difficult themes, and more. Register for the webinar here.
This webinar is open to all, but is designed for afterschool educators working with middle school and high school students.
