PD: Another Great World Savvy Workshop

World Savvy is offering another wonderful Professional development workshop….check out the description:

What is my immigration history?  What does it mean to belong to a community? How do communities change and transform through immigration? In the Immigration and Identity workshop, participants will explore these questions while gaining new tools and techniques to build students’ global literacy and cultural competency.  


Drawing on World Savvy’s extensive curriculum and arts resources, this workshop will model interactive teaching strategies, and engage educators in a supportive community of practice. Topics explored in this two-day workshop include:

  • Breaking the Ice: tools for initiating discussions of challenging topics in your classroom
  • An overview and teaching tools to address the history of Immigration in the US
  • Multiple Perspectives on the current immigration debate in the US
  •  Tools for using Art and Media as an entry point to discussing complex issues of race, ethnicity, stereotyping, and communities in conflict
  • Exploring personal immigration history stories with students

The Institute will take place in NYC on January 10th-11th, 2011. Click HERE to register now.
