Teachers are invited to a free workshop Saturday, June 6th, from 2 to 4:30 at the Mariposa Museum to learn tools for breaking down barriers and building community in diverse classrooms.
Techniques for Exploring Culture, Identity, and Community in the Classroom is designed for teachers of all disciplines and grade levels with an interest in better understanding the experiences of immigrant students in New Hampshire and for transforming immigration and diversity of all kinds into a learning resource for all students.
The workshop, which takes at the Mariposa Museum at 26 Main Street in Peterborough, from 2 to 4:30 p.m. will be led by Mariposa Education Director Anna Petrova and NH Theatre Project Director Genevieve Aichele, author of the play, Dreaming Again, which brings to the stage real life immigration stories in NH over the last 300 years. It will also bring teachers together with five Manchester West High School students who immigrated to NH from other countries and who have significant understanding of what it is like to join NH classrooms from another culture.
The workshop is free and CEU credits are available.
Reservations are required by Thursday, June 4th at 5 p.m. Please call or e-mail Karla Hostetler at 603-924-4555, or firstname.lastname@example.org
