July 28, 2018
12 – 4PM
At La Plaza Museum de Cultura y Artes
For 11th, 12th and Ethnic Studies educators
The 1968 East LA Walkouts demonstrated the impact that youth voice and activism can have on uniting a community to agitate for change. This teacher training explores the historical context and pedagogical approaches that will help teachers include this event in their courses in order to promote active civic engagement through culturally responsive instruction. This training includes conversations with educators, historians and two hands-on sessions focused on integrating activist art into the history/ethnic studies classroom.
