3-10-2021 UConn ECE American Studies, Latino and Latin American Studies and U.S. History Workshop
On Wednesday, March 10th UConn Early College Experience and UConn ECE Faculty Coordinator for American Studies Laurie Wolfley, Faculty Coordinator for Latino and Latin American Studies Anne Gebelein, and Faculty Coordinator for U.S. History Matt McKenzie met with ECE American Studies, Latino and Latin American and U.S. History Instructors for a professional development conference.
Prof. Gebelein spoke about "Mass Deportation" and engaged in a Q&A session with the group afterwards. Later, certified UConn ECE Instructors Veda Harris (Waterbury Schools) offered resources for teachers teaching Latino studies and Kim Childress and Matt Hay (Hartford Schools) shared how they integrate Latino and African-American voices into their 11th grade US History class. After a short break, Instructors broke into groups to encourage listening across disciplines for collaborative potential.
