This team of high school teachers across the Bay Area will launch a professional learning community focused on learning and growing in the area of Ethnic Studies. Their efforts will be rooted in the history and legacy of the Ethnic Studies Movement of the Bay Area, where this movement was born in 1969. With the facilitation and support from Facing History and Ourselves, the team will intentionally build community, explore core texts, curate best practices, collaborate on creating materials, units, and resources in alignment with the CA Ethnic Studies Model Curriculum, and learn from experts from the field of Ethnic Studies. They will pursue this work with the shared goal of providing the Ethnic Studies experiences that their students and communities deserve.
