Rethinking How to Teach About the First Thanksgiving [Virtual]

October 13 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

In these changing times and with more time being spent on virtual platforms, we recognize that finding the time to engage in full day training is not always possible, so we are offering a series of “Bite Sized” Professional Development opportunities. These virtual training sessions will address individual topics, and highlight how your teaching can align with Oregon’s Senate Bill 13: Tribal History/Shared History and Washington’s Since Time Immemorial.

In this session, we are not going to talk about that fateful dinner called Thanksgiving. The discussion will be focused around The Wampanoags: The People who Met the Pilgrims: A perspective of power and partnership (for grades K-2), and how you as an educator can learn from their experience developing this curriculum, and be a part of challenging history and stereotypes about Indigenous peoples.

Two sessions available, content will be the same for each session: Wednesday 10/13/2021 or Wednesday 10/20/2021. Signing up here signs you up for the October 13th session – if you wish to sign up for the 20th session, please do so here.
