Engaging Curricula for TASC Instruction: Facing History and Ourselves

Series Overview: Facing History and Ourselvesis a nonprofit educational and professional development organization that provides curricula resources and training that empower teachers to engage students of diverse backgrounds in an examination of racism, prejudice, human rights, and civic participation. This year, the Literacy Assistance Center will work with Facing History and Ourselves to offer a four-part series introducing Facing History’s approach to pedagogy, and to equip teachers with the tools and strategies they need to help students become thoughtful, responsible citizens.

Session 1: Teaching My Part of the Story

 Description: In our world, our communities and, importantly, in our schools, we face a diversity of identities and perspectives. Join us for this workshop to learn about Facing History’s new resource, My Part of the Story.  With seven lessons, the resource provides a fresh and engaging way to begin a course in United States history, literature, or civic life. It is more important than ever for all students—regardless of who they are or where they come from—to understand the value of their individual voices in the story of the United States.

 In this session, participants will:

  • Learn about a powerful framework for engaging students in a study of American history, literature, or civic life.

  • Learn and participate in teaching strategies that build community in the classroom, sharpen students’ critical thinking, and develop their voices.

  • Acquire new primary and secondary sources that forge connections between the history and literature students study and their current lived experience.

  • Engage with discussion strategies that support the discussion of current and controversial conversations in the classroom.
