Join UCBHSSP and Bay Area social studies teachers for this Saturday morning lecture and lesson share!
Speaker: Richard Rothstein, "The Making of Ferguson"
Rothstein is a fellow at the Economic Policy Institute and a leading scholar on housing discrimination. He will discuss how policy decisions contributed to the structural inequalities at the heart of the #BlackLivesMatter movement.
Following the lecture, teachers are invited to participate in student work protocols in which teachers who attended UCB History-Social Science Project summer institutes will share student work that emerged from the lessons they created. (Attendance is required for teachers who registered for credit or received a stipend for attendance at a 2015 UCBHSSP summer institute.)
A unit based on Richard Rothstein's argument was developed by UCBHSSP teacher leader, Jenna Rentz, and can be found in the 11th grade lessons on our website.
This event is co-sponsored by the Bay Area Council for the Social Studies.
