Teacher Training

Every year at its Annual Meeting, the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH) sponsors a Teacher’s Workshop that utilizes the Black History Bulletin to train local teachers on culturally responsive teaching and on how to integrate black history into the curriculum following national standards.

The Teacher’s Workshop uses a reality-based presentation that includes demonstration teaching. The Workshop incorporates the participation of high schools and middle school students from the local area.  It addresses the needs and interests of secondary history teachers, professors in teacher preparation programs, professors in curriculum and instruction, historians and others interested in the study of African American life and history.

The workshop is led by Dean LaVonne I. NealDr. Regina Lewis, Dr. Alicia Moore.  This year’s Teacher Workshop will be available on video so that school districts and teachers may incorporate it into their training.
