Are you an educator wanting to diversify the content in your classroom? Are you seeking to expand your students' horizons? The need for students to learn about Africa is as important as ever. Educators, this workshop is the perfect opportunity to learn how to bring Africa into your classroom. The Teach Africa Workshop will be held April 17, 2021 via Zoom. This event will bring together K-16 educators to workshop on teaching Africa in the schools. All teachers, administrators, students, and the public are welcome whether you are an expert on teaching Africa or this is the first time you have even considered it.

Act 48 credits will be available to interested attendees.
This workshop is in preparation for the larger project of the Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad that will focus on curriculum development. The African Studies Program received a grant to lead a group of educators to East Africa (Kenya and Uganda) to collect teaching resources and study education and return to build their own lesson plans for their classrooms.
