Description

After a tumultuous year at Boston Latin School around the issue of race, the librarian and 8th grade history teacher created a unit focusing on identity, race, and civil discourse. We selected a variety of media for students to analyze making connections between identity, stereotypes and individual world views. A variety of media, tools, and strategies from Facing History were integrated to ensure maximum student engagement, promote discussion, and build a foundation for continued discussions.

Speaker(s):

  • Deeth Ellis, Head Librarian, Boston Latin School
  • Cate Arnold, Teacher, History Department, Boston Latin School
