Teaching Tolerance: Social Justice Teaching 101 - June 11, 2019

Participant Reviews

"The workshop was interesting, meaningful, and relevant to a diverse audience. The discussions at the tables provided an opportunity to see the connections that others were making."

"I was greatly impressed with the organization and attention to details prior to the workshop, and of course the facilities at UIW during the workshop itself. I will recommend to any of my fellow colleagues how worthwhile attending a presentation at UIW is. Thank you for all your hard work!"

 

"I am not a classroom teacher, but I found SO much of the material applicable to my work as a museum educator. I've used mirrors, windows, and sliding glass doors countless times since our training."

 

"Thanks so much. I have already been sharing about the workshop in a teachers' meeting."
