Event description

Description

HHRC’s Yearning to Breathe Free: The Immigrant Experience in Maine is inspired by the popularity of HHRC’s 2016 exhibit and the educational outreach program of the same name. This one-of-a-kind program will focus on specific aspects of Maine’s history of immigration, and provide firsthand accounts of immigration today. This is a program that combines pedagogy and techniques of teaching about Maine’s immigration history, while at the same time providing compelling stories and resources that can be incorporated into classrooms.

This is a workshop that includes many guest speakers of different nationalities and heritages. It is a reflection of the diversity of Maine in the past and present.

Cost: $125, includes a copy of a recently published book on the topic, light breakfast, lunch, and snacks all day. Full Tuition Scholarships are available.

Who should attend: Current or pre-service K-12 ELA/English and Social Studies/History teachers.
