The Role of Geographic Mobility in the African American Freedom Struggle

A three-week institute for 25 school teachers on the role of geographic mobility in the African American experience.

A three-week summer institute for teachers of grades K-12 that will provide opportunities to study geographic mobility as it relates to the African American freedom struggle. The goal of the institute is to contribute to the intellectual growth of participating educators and prepare them to create and disseminate important synergies between the teaching of history and the teaching of geography. The institute offers a model of critical thought, instruction, and pedagogical application that supports ongoing calls for greater numbers of social studies educators to address power and inequity. Participants will attend lectures, fieldtrips, and lab exercises, learn methodologies and classroom activities from curriculum specialists, and participate in discussions. They will develop standards-based lesson plans that they will take back to their classrooms.
