The 1619 Project from The New York Times Magazine aims to reframe U.S. history by placing the consequences of slavery and the contributions of black Americans at the very center of our national narrative. In this hands-on workshop, participants will explore text and images from the project and evaluate how these resources can strengthen students’ racial and cultural literacies, while also supporting their engagement with their curricula. Participants will also examine ways that teachers nationwide are connecting the project to their classrooms through analysis of lessons and student work. There will be presentations and discussions with educators and administrators who are connecting the Project to high school and post-secondary classrooms over the course of the 2021-2022 school year. The session will also include small-group brainstorming and activities aimed at supporting participants in brainstorming methods for integrating 1619 Project resources into their curricula.
