2019 Summer Institute for K-12 Teachers

 Stockton University’s Atlantic City Campus

 

Drawing on photography, literature, film, and history, workshop leaders will explore the importance of the humanities to the social and political issues that shape our world. In addition to workshops on Stockton’s Atlantic City Campus, we will take a field trip to Philadelphia. Participants will come away from the 4-day institute with practical lesson plans, classroom activities, and student project ideas that support the New Jersey Student Learning Standards. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.

Sessions topics include:
Red Summer: Race Riots in the U.S., 1917 to 1923, Prof. Wendel White
Oceania in the Popular Imagination: Myths and Realities, Prof. Adam Miyashiro
