2020 Civil Rights Educator Institute - cancelled due to coronavirus impact on travel
Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site offers professional development opportunities to educational organizations and institutions with a focus on civil rights and social justice history. To request a Ranger to present to your organization or to be added to our educators contact list to receive announcements of upcoming workshops or seminars, please email our Chief of Interpretation David Kilton at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Institute offers experiential approaches and narrative strategies as tools to explore civil rights history and human rights struggles. Using place-based learning, we will visit multiple civil rights sites in the City of Little Rock and critically engage with issues of rights, struggle, story, and power of place and introduce innovative ways of connecting past to present. The CREI is a place to build community and solidarity + share multiple views and explore the work of educators as connected to civil and human rights. Participants will create a knowledge camp and initiate concentric conversation to diminish social and cultural barriers where they receive facilitation tools for classroom social action. Participants will receive credit for this professional development coursework.
