Supporting Culturally Relevant Pedagogy with Primary Sources

Teachers investigate primary sources.
Teaching Primary Sources at Rockford University and Inquiry in the Upper Midwest are offering a professional development event, Supporting Culturally Responsive Teaching with Primary Sources. This two-day event is set for August 1-2 in Beloit, WI. Teachers who complete the full two days will receive a stipend of $250. Lunch and refreshments are included. Lodging available. 
This workshop, led by Dr. Jean Swindle from Rockford University, will support teachers as they develop useful classroom strategies and tools. The two-day event will address the following topics:
  • What is Culturally Relevant Pedagogy (CRP)?
  • How can I develop lessons that are culturally relevant in today’s diverse schools?
  • How can I modify existing lessons to be more culturally relevant?
  • How can I use primary sources to connect content in a culturally relevant way?
Applications are due June 1st and teachers will be notified of their acceptance by June 16th. Teachers who are waitlisted may be admitted later as space is available.
