Teaching Social Activism Conference
REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS: TEACHING SOCIAL ACTIVISM IN THE CLASSROOM
How does teaching social activism in the classroom prepare students to be active citizens in their communities, the city, and beyond?
On March 16 and 17, 2013, the Museum of the City of New York will host Teaching Social Activism in the Classroom. Educators are invited to present and participate in this two-day conference, which will highlight the various tools and techniques used by teachers to engage their students in the history and practice of social change, inspired by the content of the Museum’s groundbreaking exhibition, Activist New York. Educators, activists, and historians will present their work to one another and will discuss the best practices for teaching this important subject to children of all ages. Sponsored by the Puffin Foundation, the conference is free.
Conference dates: Saturday, March 16 and Sunday, March 17, 2013
Place: The Museum of the City of New York, 1220 Fifth Avenue, NYC
