It is crucial that we, students, scholars, understand the history of these wars. The panel will focus on our interconnectedness and the necessity of global citizenship.

“Teaching Palestine”

Marlboro Graduate Center, 28 Vernon Street, Brattleboro, VT

Contact: Nicole Awwad – nica.awwad@gmail.com

Workshop Content: Palestine connects to many subjects we already teach: immigration, Manifest Destiny, environmental struggles, the justice system, and international human rights. But discussion and critical thinking about Palestine are often silenced. In this interactive workshop we will explore many ways—including youth voice—to bring Palestine into our classrooms.

Afternoon with Judy Dow:

The Eugenics Survey of VT, or the so-called ‘cleansing’ of VT, targeted mostly poor (including African American, French Canadian, and Catholic) and indigenous families. In this session we look back at this history using primary source documentation. Teachers will both participate and learn to teach and research local stories of both the land the people using town records and mapping exercises. You will go home with a unit, ready to use with your students.

Professional Development Credits: For teachers who wish to receive professional Development Credits: the full day workshop will include 3 PD credits for a $135 fee. Each participant will write a research paper/lesson plan and reflection paper; both must be turned in before receiving credits.
