Another one of the sessions at the upcoming KATH Annual Meeting, October 18th, is “’They are rising—all are rising’: Teaching Civil Rights for Civic Purposes” led by Dr. Linda Levstik, University of Kentucky College of Education. Dr. Levstik describes her session as follows:
In 1999, a history teacher in Massachusetts, Scott Culclasure, wrote that because history is our creation, we are responsible to each other for choosing to tell some stories and to leave others untold. In this session we will consider the civic consequences of shifting our historical gaze from pivotal individuals in the Civil Rights Movement to the collective power of ordinary people taking civic action in extraordinary times.
Sign up for the KATH Annual Meeting today!
Looking forward to seeing you in Louisville at the conference.
