Literature helps us explore ourselves by providing windows into other worlds and mirrors back into our own stories, raising questions, and presenting multiple perspectives. In this literature book club, Facing History offers teachers the opportunity to dive into a contemporary piece of literature and make relevant connections to history, the present, and ourselves. Join us for a conversation about The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas alongside our lessons on Emmett Till, as well as our media literacy unit, Facing Ferguson: News Literacy in a Digital Age.
After this workshop you will:
Become part of the Facing History educator network, with access to a rich slate of educator resources, including downloadable unit and lesson plans, study guides, and multimedia
Be able to borrow books and DVDs through our online lending library at no cost
CTLE hours are available for this workshop.
