Race and Justice in American History and Literature

This event has been canceled.

In this seminar, participants will examine how the history of “race” shaped the struggle for social justice in our nation.  Using literature, primary sources, and digital assets, participants will explore ways to deepen students’ knowledge of history and literature, and illuminate fundamental questions of human behavior.


In this workshop, you will:

  1. Learn how to use Facing History’s scope and sequence framework to teach themes of racial injustice and civic agency and responsibility; 

  2. Be able to pair literature with innovative strategies, historical context, primary sources, and informational texts; and

  3. Experience resources and discussions you can model in your own classroom that apply the themes of identity and decision-making characters in literature and students' own lives.


Facing History’s approach develops students’ literacy and historical analysis skills; historical understanding; and social–emotional competencies, particularly as they relate to perspective taking and social and cultural awareness.
