    Workshop: "Raise Your Voices: Shaping Democracy in the Classroom" (part 3 of 3)

    February 25, 2006, 10:00am-3:00pm
    The Field Museum
    Chicago, IL

    The third of three FREE workshops for middle-school teachers (grades 6-8). Lane credit and/or CPDUs available.

    Don't miss this unique opportunity to work with professional development specialists from the Center for Cultural Understanding and Change at The Field Museum and Cultural Connections partner museums to consider the connections between understanding the value of cultural diversity and preserving the concept of democracy! Together, we will utilize an integrated approach that will combine the use of some key concepts and tools of cultural anthropology, ethnic museums and cultural centers as resources, and a social justice educational framework. These workshops have been designed to provide you with a chance to see and hear the experiences of others through their eyes and ears. We will spend time working with you to develop feasible projects that bring these perspectives into the classroom.

    The Mitchell Museum of the American Indian and the Chicago Japanese American Historical Society will present their perspectives on the experience of relocation and the topic of stereotypes by examining icons and images.
