Ethnic Studies Professional Learning Series
Ethnic Studies has been adopted as a graduation requirement at high schools in California. The purpose of this series is to introduce Ethnic Studies approaches and content to secondary teachers, as well as site and district leaders. Each afternoon of the series will include 45 minutes of input from scholars and educators. Key topics include Ethnic Studies purposes and themes, African American Studies, Chicana/o/x and Latina/o/x Studies, Native American Studies, lesson planning, and community engagement. Following input, educators will discuss ways to implement what they learned. Participants will be able to differentiate Ethnic Studies from culturally relevant/responsive practices and multicultural education.
