Teaching Untaught Histories
Designed For High School Social Studies Teachers
$300 Teacher Stipend
What’s at stake when we teach untaught histories?
Join an informative and dynamic 3-day exchange about some of the most compelling stories rooted in the GGNRA and Angel Island – immigration and deportation, militarization and resistance, conservationism and racism, climate change and global migration. Utilizing a local perspective, we will draw deeper conclusions and understanding of how and why these themes thread through the 20th century. At the Presidio of San Francisco and Angel Island Immigration Station, we will immerse ourselves in place and poetry.
Dissonant Voices offers you a practical approach in using historic and community sources to provoke students to pose meaningful questions, apply critical thinking skills, and build historic interpretations.
