Dr. Pablo Correa and Dr. Maegan Parker Brooks will draw on their collective experience in the production of Fanie Lou Hamer’s America (a documentary project) to talk about how to teach the Civil Rights across the curriculum. Of particular interest to GSEC teacher-candidates will be the discussion of work the speakers did with K-12 teachers in the Mississippi Delta on integrating Fannie Lou Hamer curriculum design, and empowering young people to tell their story using multimedia.
On February 7 , Dr. Kelly Mack’s presentation will focus on the highly acclaimed AAC&U Teaching to Increase Diverse and Equity in STEM (TIDES) initiative, which is targeted toward empowering STEM faculty to implement culturally responsive teaching strategies in STEM classrooms.
