Educator Workshop: Teaching with the “Light of Truth” in the K-12 Classroom

October 27, 2020 @ 6:00 pm

8th– 12th grade teachers are invited to join us for a panel discussion sharing challenges and strategies for teaching “hard history” in a way that helps students understand the implications of our past and are empowered to address the challenges of the present. From integrating primary sources to engaging in effective techniques for leading controversial classroom discussions, teachers will leave with strategies for turning on “the light of truth” in their own classrooms. Participating teachers must have registered and attended one or more of the other five virtual events in the “The Light of Truth: Celebrating the Life and Work of Ida B Wells” series. ***Teachers are eligible for CEUs for each event in the series they attend.




The Light of Truth symposia collection is co-sponsored by the Orange County Community Remembrance Coalition, Chapel Hill/Carrboro Branch of the NAACP, Center for the Study of the American South, Ida B. Wells Society for Investigative Journalism, Carolina K-12, Sonja Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History, Carolina Women’s Center, #BlackOutLoudUNC, Southern Cultures, and Hussman School of Journalism and Media at UNC.
