Virtual Zoom session
May 12, 2022
For the 2021-22 school year the Map Center is offering a series of FREE “small bites” professional development sessions foregrounding teaching about Boston through a social justice lens, though the sessions are easily adaptable to other municipalities. These 6 sessions will run after school and will be a mix of in-person and Zoom sessions designed to send you off with great map-based lessons and resources to immediately implement in your classroom. All K-12 teachers are welcome. Sign up for one or all of them!
For our final session of the school year, we’ll explore education connections to our upcoming exhibition More or Less in Common: Environment and Justice in the Human Landscape. Explore how environmental harm is borne unequally by different communities, both in the past and the present, and consider how to foster placed-based environmental thinking in students that is coupled with social justice via a map-based lesson.
