On Saturday, January 23, 2016, the King Institute will hold the first workshop in their free Liberation Curriculum series: “Looking Back and Looking Forward – Connections Through Social Justice.” The workshop allows educators to partake in quality professional learning around Dr. King and the Civil Rights Movement. They will have an opportunity to work with the resources available at the Institute, including hundreds of primary source documents on King and the Civil Rights Movement. In addition to networking opportunities and invaluable resources, the workshop also offers professional development credit after completion. Ultimately, the workshop aims to create a learning environment that will allow the educators to address their students' needs through powerful lessons in the classroom about social change.
This free workshop open to all K-12 educators will take place on Saturday, Jan 23, 2016, from 9:30 AM-2:30 PM. Breakfast and lunch will be served. Registration will be from 9:30 to 10:00 AM in the Jerry Yang and Akiko Yamazaki Environment and Energy Building (Y2E2), Room 299.
