Saturday Seminar:

Teaching "Eyes on the Prize"

Led by
Dr. Janette Greenwood, associate professor of history at Clark University

Saturday, September 15, 2007
8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
at Assumption College

Eyes on the Prize: America's Civil Rights Movement, 1954-1985, a prize-winning PBS "American Experience" documentary series, uses contemporary interviews and historical footage to cover all of the major events of the civil rights movement from 1954-1985. Dr. Greenwood has used the series extensively in her teaching, and she will share some strategies for using particular portions of the program in your classrooms. This seminar will provide content that can be used to cover USII.25 and USII.26 from the USII Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks.

You can earn an additional graduate credit from Worcester State College if you are enrolled in the spring course and you participate in 2 of the 3 Saturday seminars. You are expected to attend the entire event. Each seminar is worth 5 PDPs, and you do not have to be enrolled in the TAH course to be eligible to register for the seminars. Some pre-reading may be required.
