This spring 2022 virtual teacher workshop, the first of a series of three, will offer an overview of our upcoming special exhibition Afro-Atlantic Histories, which explores the vast range of historical experiences and artistic expressions of Black and African people since the 17th century.

In this workshop, a lecturer will share an overview of the exhibition, describing the six main themes and highlighting key works of art that can be shown digitally in classrooms. Participants will then use a thinking routine from Harvard’s Project Zero to foster a deeper discussion of one work and consider how the exhibition can be applied across teaching contexts. Registrants will receive access to digital teaching resources related to the exhibition. While all educators are welcome, this workshop will be especially relevant to those who teach middle school, high school, and social studies curricula.

Time: Mar 10, 2022 04:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
