2018 Summer Institute

"Something never to be forgotten": Stories of Race and Identity

June 26 - 29, 2018
Grafton, Vermont



How do we have courageous conversations about race?

How do our own perceptions of identity influence our teaching?

How do we use history to prompt meaningful discussions about race and identity with students?

How do we help students become empathetic leaders and agents of change?


During the four days we will work with these questions and along the way explore stories that connect the enduring human condition to lessons that can be applied today. Stories will be drawn from:
  • The Underground Railroad
  • The Civil War 
  • Daisy Turner's Family History
  • Monuments and Memorials in our Communities
We will focus on discussion protocols to support courageous conversations and model inquiry approaches.  More details can be seen at the Summer Institute Website where we are working on final schedules.
