Course Description: The purpose of this course is to build teacher content knowledge around 20th and 21st century social activism and explore how current activism can be informed by activism of the past through hands-on art-making and STEAM integration. Participants will trace different types of social activism throughout the 20th and 21st centuries, the modes in which groups communicated their messages, and the historic figures that fought for a variety of causes. After grounding the course in historical content, teachers will consider how to bring a diverse range of voices into their classrooms when teaching these topics in order to support students to explore their own complex identities. In partnership with the New York Historical Society.

*Note: We are excited to announce that we have scholarship funding to waive the MFTA fee for 10 participants. To be eligible, you must be a DOE teacher at a Title 1 school, or high ENI school. This opportunity is first-come, first-served. Submit a Scholarship Request here.

Registration Instructions: If you are taking this course for P-Credits/+30 Credits, you will need to register on both the MFTA and the ASPDP website. (ASPDP registration opens on June 10th.)
