Workshop Focuses on Community Activism

Friday, 10/5/12

Using Philadelphia's Chinatown as a case study, a teacher workshop on Monday, October 15, models a new HSP unit plan on understanding the role of community organizing in social change and how social change happens.  Learn how Philadelphia’s Chinatown has evolved over time and its ongoing struggle to maintain its geographic and cultural integrity. The workshop will be taught by Debbie Wei, the director of the Office of Multilingual Curriculum and Programs in the School District of Philadelphia. Attendees will receive a copy of the spring issue of Pennsylvania Legacies, which incudes a short version of the unit and lots of background materials on Chinatown.

The workshop runs from 4:30-6:30 p.m., and refreshments will be served. Act 48 credit given. Register online today!
