- Thu, Jul 9 2020 •
Florida International University is offering a FREE K-12 Teacher Summer Institute July 20-24 from 7am-10am MST via Zoom
The Arts Under the Cuban Revolution: Protest, Propaganda, Politics?
The Institute looks beyond Cuba’s Cold War conflict with the US and examines a less familiar side of the Cuban story of the 1960s. Scholars and experts on Cuban history, politics, sociology, music, theater, photography, film, and dance provide new insights into the politicization of daily life and expression in 1960s Cuba.
The program is led by Dr. Michael Bustamante, FIU History professor and specialist on modern Cuba, and features pedagogy sessions and classroom implementation strategies by FIU LACC Master Teacher and Palmer Trinity School History Department Co-Chair, Laura Massa.
Institute content targets Social Studies, Fine Arts and Language Arts educators, but public, charter and private school teachers from all subjects and grade levels are welcome to participate. Content may qualify for teacher professional development and/or re-certification credit depending on your district requirements. All registrants must commit to participating in the entire week-long program.
If interested in this free PD register at this link by July 14th. Or see attached flyer for more information.
