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 After grounding the course in historical content, teachers will consider how to bring a diverse range of voices into their classrooms when teaching these topics in order to support students to explore their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.
*To receive P-Credits, participants must be registered with MFTA and on the ASPDP website.
