What can we do, alone and with others, to confront racism? How can we as individuals and as citizens make a positive difference in our school, community, and nation? This full-day workshop explores Facing History’s interdisciplinary approach using Warriors Don’t Cry, the memoir of one of the Little Rock Nine, Melba Pattillo Beals. Through this powerful memoir, students will connect with the history of the integration of Central High School in 1957 and access the past through the voices of real people recalling experiences from their youth.
Attendance includes a same-day viewing of Kean Stage's limited production of “Warriors Don’t Cry.”
In this workshop you will:
- Receive a copy of Teaching Warriors Don’t Cry
- Attend Kean Stage’s limited production of “Warriors Don’t Cry”
- Understand Facing History’s unique approach to teaching through an interdisciplinary lens to develop students’ literacy, historical analysis, and social-emotional skills
- Leave with classroom-ready multimedia tools, resources, and teaching strategies
This workshop is offered with the Holocaust Resource Center & Diversity Council on Global Education and Citizenship at Kean University.
