Latino/a Lives in the South: A workshop on oral histories for the K-12 classroom
Sixteen K-12 teachers from across North Carolina gathered on April 23, 2016 to participate in “Latino/a Lives in the South: A workshop on oral histories for the K-12 classroom.” Teachers were introduced to the New Roots/Nuevas Raíces Oral History Archive and had the opportunity to visit the exhibit ¡NUEVOlution!. Teachers left inspired to use the tools learned to integrate Latino/a voices in their classrooms. The event was sponsored by the Consortium in Latin American and Caribbean Studies, the Latino Migration Project, and the Levine Museum of the New South.
The New Roots team would like to thank Kamille Bostick, Vice President for Education at the museum for facilitating our visit and meeting with participant teachers. We also want to thank Claire Shuch, Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Geography & Earth Sciences at UNC Charlotte for a great presentation.
