Teaching and Learning Workshops, inHarlem, Educator Programs

Join us at the Schomburg Center for an exciting Teaching and Learning Workshop where you will try your hand at being an artist and an archivist! The workshop will include an exploration of the inHarlem exhibition Firelei Báez: Joy Out of Fire, a tour of the Schomburg Center's archives to learn more about available resources, and an art-making session where you will respond to archival sources and examine the stories of influential women of African descent. Educators will consider new ways to connect a variety of primary sources to educational curricula, developing strategies for incorporating primary sources into the classroom.

Pre-K through 12th grade educators from all disciplines are welcome! This Teaching and Learning Workshop is free. Space is limited, and available on a first-come, first-served basis. RSVP is required below.
