This Summer Workshop for high school and middle school teachers and librarians is co-sponsored by Broome-Tioga BOCES and the State University of New York at Binghamton with funding from the U.S. Department of Education. The focus of the week-long seminar will be on Slavery, the Civil War and Reconstruction. We will explore recent interpretations of the causes and consequences of the Civil War, examine the teaching possibilities of primary documents, and develop new perspectives on teaching within the framework of New York State standards.

This intensive workshop will meet daily from 8:30 to 3:30 in Building B, room 125, a computer classroom in the School of Education and Human Development. A buffet lunch will be provided each day. We will be mailing out parking permits for the week. Participants will also receive a resource text that we will employ throughout the week, Freedom's Unfinished Revolution: An Inquiry Into the Civil War and Reconstruction (The New Press, 1996). We will explore resistance to slavery, sectional conflict and the coming of the Civil War, African Americans during the Civil War, and Reconstruction. Most reading and activities will take place during workshop hours, but there will be modest readings called for between workshop meetings.

In addition to the readings and discussions during the course of the workshop, participants will select a topic for development of a teaching unit during the course of the 2002-2003 school year. Participants should be thinking about possible projects during the first days of the workshop and come prepared on Friday to discuss their topics. Also on Friday, Ellen Campion of the Endicott Educational Resource Center will describe the process by which participants will prepare for a Peer Review Conference to be held May 10, 2003 at the Heritage Country Club. In the coming school year, participants will develop and test their curriculum materials with students and prepare to present their materials in the Peer Review setting. Ellen Campion and project staff will be providing support during the academic year for these projects.

If you have not received your parking permits or have other questions, please contact project coordinator, Allyn Van Deusen, by email or by phone at (607) 777-6769.
