Are you a DC/MD/VA teacher who wants to know more about Native American history, culture, and how treaties are relevant today?
Join the National Museum of the American Indian and the Zinn Education Project to uncover engaging approaches to connect content from the exhibition Nation to Nation: Treaties Between the United States and American Indian Nations to your classroom curriculum.
Participants will discuss the power of word choice and engage in related concepts, such as Westward Expansion from American Indian perspectives.
Teachers will see a lesson plan in action, explore primary and secondary sources, and share classroom strategies to uncover the connections between historical treaties and their relevance today.
Refreshments and classroom resources are included. The event is free, but spots are limited. Please register online.
