Educator Workshop: Contemporary National Cultural Identity in Latin America and the Caribbean
Designed as a professional development workshop (5 PD hours) intended primarily for high school and community college educators (but open to all K-16 educators and librarians), this one-day event will incorporate perspectives from the social sciences and humanities to explore contemporary national identities in Latin America and the Caribbean.
By revisiting current events, national and global politics, the workshop will discuss how Latin American national identities and perspectives have changed over time to better understand the region’s history, politics, and culture and provide examples of how this can be translated into classroom instruction.
