The Light of Truth: Ida B. Wells as Journalist, Advocate, & Educator - Teaching with the "Light of Truth in the K-12 Classroom"
Featuring Christie Norris, Carolina K-12 | Dr. Brian Gibbs, UNC-CH School of Education | Cori Greer Banks, Exploris Middle School.
8th- 12th grade teachers are invited to join us for a panel discussion sharing challenges and strategies for teaching “hard history” in a way that helps students understand the implications of our past and are empowered to address the challenges of the present. From integrating primary sources to engaging in effective techniques for leading controversial classroom discussions, teachers will leave with strategies for turning on “the light of truth” in their own classrooms.
