  • Grant Summary:

    Funding to develop a professional development program for high school teachers, one which will address our “composite nation,” emphasizing African American and Latino American history, with particular focus on Puerto Rican history. This will be a seven-month program, from July 1, 2020 to January 31, 2021. During the course of the program a consulting group of historians, educators, and students will meet monthly via a virtual meeting platform to plan the workshop series. The group will work closely with the State Educational Resource Center (SERC), the organization tasked with designing the curriculum for the newly mandated class. The project team will select the topics to be covered during the workshop series, identify and contact scholars to lead the individual workshops, identify readings and resources to support each of those workshops, and select the dates and venues where the individual workshops are to be held.
