This panel was part of a series of events connected with Facing History & Ourselves’ Partner Schools Network and our All Community Read of Judith Heumann’s memoir, Being Heumann and its companion young adult adaptation, Rolling Warrior.
In this educator panel, two Partner School educators from Gann Academy, Yoni Kadden and Alex Green, spoke about their high school course on the history of disability and ableism in America and the project-based curriculum that culminated in students creating a nationally recognized public museum exhibit on the history of disability. We also heard from Jennifer Saber, a classroom educator in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the Education Inclusion Coordinator at Shutaf Inclusion Programs, and the key developer of Shutaf Inclusion Guide, a powerful and accessible compilation of training videos and resources for educators.
Webinar participants received links pertaining to both the Gann Academy project on the history of disability and ableism in America and the Shutaf Inclusion Guide.
