The Hard History Project is hosting a monthly Virtual Professional Learning Community (VPLC) in partnership with University of New Orleans’ Midlo Center.

Tuesday, April 6th at 7:00 EST | Link to event

Every month we’ll dig in deep to look at at least two of the Summary Objectives of the 6-12 Framework for Learning for Justice’s  Teaching Hard History Initiative. You are welcome to join.

Our lead presenter will be Dr. Kate Shuster, the director of the Hard History Project and the long-time manager of the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Teaching Hard History Initiative.

We are very excited to have Dr. Bethany Jay as our guest tomorrow. Bethany is a professor of history at Salem State University.  She co-edited Understanding and Teaching American Slavery, the book that became the basis for the Teaching Hard History. She was also the lead author of the first edition of the framework. 

Bethany and Kate will be leading us through Summary Objectives 13 and 14. Please bring your questions for Dr. Jay!  She literally edited the book that we use as our guideline for teaching and learning about slavery. 

As always, we’ll have some time to share with each other what teaching practices work well to introduce these topics to students.

The session will last 90 minutes, with about 45 minutes of that being Q&A. Check out our Google Folder where you can share resources and lessons for feedback each month.

Please feel free to share this information with any and all educators who might like to attend.
