Civil rights, elections, protest, and police actions: How do we help our students understand how the Vietnam War, the Cold War, and the Civil Rights Movement still affect us America today? This series combines public lectures and workshops, and will discuss ways to turn stories of 1968 Philadelphia into engaging classroom activities. Each evening session of three hours (5:30-8:30 pm) will have a focus:
- October 3 - Behind the Marches
- October 10 - Protest in the Streets
- October 24 - Arts and Entertainment
Act 48 credit will be awarded for each workshop attended, and participants will have an opportunity to earn extra credits by attending all workshops and completing classroom activities with their students.
