Virtual Teacher Workshop: Lynching in Maryland
K-12 educators face particular challenges when addressing the painful history of lynching and racially motivated violence with young learners. Together, MCHC Education Department staff and the Reginald F. Lewis Museum will highlight instructional resources and primary source material to support these discussions in the classroom. Participants will gain access to oral history interviews, photographs, newspapers, and manuscripts, and investigative lesson plans about lynching in Maryland. The MCHC and the Reginald F. Lewis Museum are both designated members of the Maryland Lynching Truth and Reconciliation Commission.
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.
