Virtual Teacher Workshop: Confederate Monuments and Memorialization
In recent years, monuments, songs, and other efforts to commemorate the Confederacy have come under intense scrutiny. Perspectives vary about the meaning of these symbols and their role in public spaces. Many teachers struggle with addressing these issues in their classrooms—we are here to help. During this free workshop open to all educators, the MCHC’s Education Department will highlight instructional resources and primary source material to support discussions on this topic.
This virtual program is free and open to all educators. Registration is required. After registering for the program, attendees will receive an automated confirmation email with connection instructions.
