2021 Teacher Training Workshop

Thematic day-long workshops for local K-14 teachers to learn about important topics in Latin America and the Caribbean and integrate new content into their curriculum. SCECH credit available.

Asynchronous Modules available on April 17, 2021

Synchronous Events via Zoom on April 24, 2021, 1:00 – 6:00 PM EST

This event will bring together scholars, educators, and artists to provide Michigan K-14 teachers with context and resources for teaching about issues of water and environmental justice. We will explore place-based pedagogies to help educators connect water issues across local and global scales.

The workshop will offer materials and resources to help educators foster classroom dialogue through hands-on and interactive activities, including the use of print and visual multimedia.

The combined synchronous and asynchronous workshop will include a series of lesson modules and interactive teaching events with leading scholars and professionals in the field.

All registered participants will receive 8 State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECHs). 

Registration is free

Michigan teachers who register for SCECH credits will receive a book (Emily Wakild and Michelle K. Berry, A Primer for Teaching Environmental History, Duke University Press, 2018) and links to digital materials and resources for classroom use designed for the event by the speakers
