Annual Symposium and Teacher’s Workshop: Focusing on Civic Engagement

This one-day workshop will focus on teaching tools to meet current needs in social studies instruction through civics. Teachers will learn to strengthen their students’ civic literacy skills through primary source analysis and cultivating disciplinary thinking skills.

Primary source material will focus on the Women’s Suffrage movement and Antisuffrage movements in Alabama and across the country, plus other battles for voting rights. Women’s Suffrage and universal voting rights are also the topics of an upcoming exhibition hosted by Vulcan Park and Museum which will open in January 2020. Featured workshop activities will support current College and Career Ready Standards plus the C3 Framework by the National Council for Social Studies.
